I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure my kids won the grandparent lottery. They are so blessed to have such amazing grandparents who spoil them rotten! People often talk about how strong a mother or father’s love is, and I am pretty sure a grandparent’s love could be counted right up there too. Did you know that there is a special day set apart to honor grandparents? September 10th is Grandparents Day and I think it is definitely a day worth celebrating! And a cute and useful Handprint Oven Mitt is the perfect gift!
Just a suggestion…you could also tuck this gift idea away for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It is such a sweet idea and it is USEFUL! I like giving gifts that are practical as well as fun so that they don’t just end up gathering dust on a shelf somewhere. And since pretty much everybody has to eat, and cook at least a little, then a Handprint Oven Mitt is a gift that will be used often and bring a smile while being used.
To make this gift I found a nice matching set of kitchen towels and oven mitts at Bed Bath & Beyond and bought some fabric paint at Joanns. It was then as easy as dipping my kids’ hands into the paint and pressing them onto the oven mitt! And if you’ve ever wrestled with a two year old with his hands covered in paint, then you know how easy it is. :)
I’ve even included a gift tag with a sweet poem to make your gift giving even easier! This poem is perfect for grandparents, mothers, and fathers. If you wanted to create your own gift tag you could easily adapt this gift idea for teachers too! Perhaps just change the wording up a bit and it is ready for teachers.
