Kissing Hand - Back to School Project

A new school year is an exciting time for kids, parents and teachers!  This is a time of hopes and dreams for a happy and successful school year. 

A perfect first day story is "The Kissing Hand". This is a story about a little raccoon ready to start school. He talks about his fears to his mother, fears that most children have before beginning school. His mother comes up with a wonderful solution to help her little raccoon remember that she loves him and is thinking about him, even when she isn't with him. A wonderful and heart-warming story to share with little ones.

I actually made this project for Mother's day of this year but it is also a wonderful back to school project!

This project inspired by The Kissing Hand book. 
It is a great project for a first day of school for your little ones!
For this one I painted my son's hands and printed on the back of a scrapbook paper.
You can download the Kissing Hands labels HERE

Having fun while mommy finishes the project
