Gifts made from the handprints of toddlers are endearing to receive and fun for children to make. You can make gifts such as hand towels and flower pots with handprint designs on them. Calendars, cards, aprons, T-shirts and wall hangings can also be made with handprints. Beautiful paper flowers can be made from handprints that are rolled up with straw or pipe-cleaner stems, and a card made of two hands with a relevant poem inside makes a keepsake family members will cherish.
