A fun decoration for kids to make, this wreath made out of hand prints symbolizes the principles of unity and self-determination. Using red, green and black, the traditional colors of Kwanzaa, lets the wreath fit right in with the rest of your holiday decor.
Brightly colored construction paper or cardboard
Step 1: On the construction paper, trace your hands and the hands of your grandchildren with pencil.
Step 2: Cut out the hand prints.
Step 3: Each person writes something on the back of his or her own hand print. Ideas include: the joy of being with family, special moments from the past year, milestones reached, goals for the upcoming year, or dreams for the future. Help little ones who cant write by letting them dictate to you what their hand print should say.
Step 4: Decorate the other side of the hand prints with stickers, markers, glitter, photos, or any memorabilia from the year that is ending.
Step 5: Paste each hand print together in a circular form to create a wreath-like wall hanging.
Step 6: Hang prominently from a string so both sides of the wreath can be seen.
