Playroom: Handprint Portraits

It's still Take-A-Look Tuesday...scroll on down for that

The Playroom Craft Parade keeps on marching....

In my mind most houses have a wall of portraits.  So my playhouse wall of handprints is a play off that idea.  I used 4 main colors in the space, and have 4 kids - perfect.
I found these cheap frames at a garage sale and they were begging for a purpose.  I painted each a different color.  Then I had each child pick their frame and then pick the color they wanted their handprint - the stipulation was that it couldn't be the same color as the frame.  Then I painted their hand and pushed it on to a piece of paper (each kid got a "trial run" on scrappaper first) that I had cut to fit the frame.  I think it turned out great - so fun to see how the kids are growing!
