Are you ready for the Preschool Book Club to start back up!  We were and could not wait to start doing book activities again.  Today we are sharing on a classic back to school book the Kissing Hand.  As long as this book has been around I must admit this year was the first time I read it.  Such a great book for nervous kids starting school.  We set out to make a print craft and I came up with a “token of love” to send with my kids to school.

I painted the boys hands.  We pressed them down on white paper.  I left them to dry a few hours.  I looked all over for our red heart stickers and never found them.  So I cut little red hearts out of paper.

Once the handprints were dry, the kids glued on the red paper hearts to the paper.

Now we had a picture just like out of the book. I just love how they turned out.  Simple but wonderful. I will hang these up on our art wall for the kids to look at when school starts back.

What to do:

I put my husband to work on this project.  He is better at drawing than I am.  He used the white paper to try the design out first.  Then he drew the heart in the hand on the disc with the sharpies.

Giving the kids a token of love to take with them was important to me.  Last year little brother started a 3 half day a week preschool program.  Everyday for a few weeks he had to take a plastic gold coin with him in his pocket to school.  It made him feel better about going.  I am not sure why this ordinary little coin from our play area was picked but it eased him on his school days.  This year after reading the Kissing Hand I knew exactly what I would make for him (and big brother) for school this year.  These Kissing Hand Tokens of Love were the perfect gift to give them for heading back to school.
