Anyone else have trouble coming up with Christmas ideas for the adults in your life? Whether it is your spouse, parents, or siblings, I struggle to find meaningful gifts for those I love.
Several years ago I discovered the ideas of a calendar personalized with hand and footprints. What isn’t more adorable than the little prints of those you love?
With the help of a friend, we created calendars for the grandparents. We purchased the calendar, made the prints, printed the verses, cut and glued everything to the calendar. While well worth it, a lot of effort went into the project.
Knowing that this activity takes a lot of time, I wanted to make it easier for the ABCJLM and Our Out-of-Sync Life families. So, I created a printable just for you! Now available to order is a Digital Download including all of the calendar pages, directions, tips, and supply list needed.
Each month includes a suggested hand or footprint creation, directions to create it, and a verse that matches the print.
Also included are the 12 2018 calendar pages, a notes page, and a 2019 calendar.
But don’t just take my word for it.
This is what Holly said about creating the ABCJLM Hand and Footprint Calendar with her son.
What a cute, handmade gift my son can give to his grandparents for Christmas! It will be such a special keepsake for them. My son and I are both so proud of the finished product.
You’ll need a minimum of two hours to complete the project. It took me about four hours because I had my son do all his hand prints on separate paper. Then I had to cut everything out and glue it to the calendar pages. Stamping his hand right on the calendar pages would save a lot of time. I will do that when making our second calendar for his other set of grandparents.
Don’t be intimidated by this project. I was, but now I’m so glad we have it, and preserving his little hand and foot prints is truly priceless. Go for it! You’ll be glad you did.
