Handprint Magnets

Day 1 of our week - Our theme this week is School. Connor and Lauren are starting preschool next week, so I thought we should do some back to school themed projects this week. The letter of the week is I, i and the number of the week is 2.

Project - Handprint Magnets - I thought this was an appropriate project for the kids to do, so they have someway of displaying the things they come home with from preschool.
Connor and Lauren covered their hands in paint. Then they pressed their hands onto colored construction paper. After the paint was dry, I wrote their name on one hand print and the word art on the other handprint. Then I cut around the hand prints and laminated them. Finally, I glued a magnet on the back of the laminated hand prints, so they can be placed on the refrigerator. These hand prints will act as display magnets for Connor and Lauren's projects/art from preschool. Materials Needed - paint, construction paper, permanent marker, scissors, laminating sheets (optional), magnets
