Age: from birth
Time: 5 to 10 minutes (depending on how wriggly your child is!)
Equipment needed: canvas or thick paper / card, paint (choose a kind which will wash off skin and clothes), paint brush, newspapers or old shower curtain to protect the area, plus any ribbon, stickers or sequins you want to add
Choose a colour of paint you like and brush it on to your child’s hand or foot, then gently and evenly press their hand /foot on to the canvas. You might have to try more than once.
You can then add ribbon, sequins, stickers or writing to make a personalised gift. I think these are especially popular with grandparents 🙂
