New Handprint Poem

New Handprint Poem

Handprint poems can be a fun activity for grandparents and grandchildren together when placing their  handprints next to the poem. For the new handprint poem below, choose two colors – one for the grandparent’s prints that will be an attractive contrast to blue or pink for the grandchild’s prints.

First place the grandparent’s hand in acrylic paint and then stamp their handprint onto cardstock which can be found at a craft store. Do the same if they are willing, with their footprint, too.  Allow the grandparent’s prints to dry. Next, do the same with the grandchild’s handprint and footprint but place them on top of the grandparent’s using pink or blue.

My Print, Your Print

My print, your print…two handprints all
Place one on the other, yours looks so small

We’ll be holding hands through all time
When you place your little handprint on top of mine

My print, your print…two footprints all
Place one on the other, yours looks so small

We’ll be walking together through all time
When you place your little footprint on mine

Hold my loving hand, I will gently lead
I will follow when you walk with me

Hold my hand and we’ll walk together
Through sun, clouds, and all kinds of weather
