My grandson and I made fingerprints this morning. He is four years old. (2010) We both enjoyed it, especially when they became real “funny people”!
ART: Grandchildren
Children of all ages love doing art!
I miss you when we’re not together
I’m growing up so fast
See how big I’ve gotten
Since you saw me last?
As I grow, I’ll change a lot,
The years will fly right by.
You’ll wonder how I grew so quick
When and where and why?
So look upon this handprint (these handprints)
That’s hanging on your wall.
And memories will come back of me,
When I was very small.
