Last year for Mother’s Day, I made my mom a elephant hand print of Kami’s hand to put in the nursery that they made for the grandkids. I thought it would be fun to have all the grandkids put their handprints as jungle animals since that’s the theme of the room. And since I’m the only one with kids so far, I got to start the theme.
So now that Clo is almost a year old, I thought it was about time to do a hand print for her. So we made her a giraffe hand print!
I like to pick animals that represent my girls a little bit. I chose an elephant for Kami because that was the first animal sound she could make. And I chose a giraffe for Clo because she has a super long tongue and used to stick it out all the time. 🙂 I’m hoping our next baby is a boy and his will be a monkey because boys are monkeys right? Am I thinking way too far ahead? Oh yes! But it’s still fun to think about right?
Anyway, the hand print was easy to make. I just put yellow paint on Clo’s hands, laid her hand down on the paper as best as I could, then painted the details in black paint.

I also took a few pictures of the nursery for you to see. So my dad is really good at duplicating things that he sees. My mom bought some decorations for the baby room with a jungle theme and my dad copied the animals and painted a few of them on the walls. It’s really cute! Here’s two of them and there’s an elephant painted by the door. I love the little monkeys hanging from the ceiling and so do my girls!
This is a really fun keepsake that I hope all the grandkids do so we can keep all their little hand prints in a fun way.
