  • well my 20 month old ate the finger paint the first time we tried, so i def. wont do that again lol.. I did a shadow box last year with pictures of us, and pictures of our son, and cute quotes that we use all the time, used some ribbon, and put in a few flowers from our wedding, and some sentimental things, you could always try the paint on the whole hand to just get the hand print:) have fun!

  • Thanks so much guys.. Yeah I was kinda scared that she would eat the paint and then somebody told me to use condiments but then she might get a allergic reaction..

  • Maybe paint on her hand to make a print of it in/on a heart with a poem to the effect of her hand always being on Hubby's heart??? And it'll mean a lot since it was of her actual hand!

  • Take the baby's pic and put it on a shirt for him to wear or a coffee mug, etc

  • Try hand or foot prints in the shape of a heart.. With a little I love you in crayon ( very child like writing ) and sign her name.. Just make sure you wipe it off fast :) Good luck
