Hand Print Wreath {Guest Post}

Today I have my very first guest post on my blog!  
*This is my excited face*
 Jacque from 'Jacque's Soda Parlor' and 'Mommy & Me Creations' will be doing a tutorial today.
Here she is!!!

Hi! My name is Jacque and I'm excited to be guest speaking on "Mandi Being Crafty". I'm a stay-at-home-mom to two beautiful girls-- Brooklee (2 1/2 years old) and Saydee (almost 7 months old now) and a former preschool teacher. I blog over at "Jacque's Soda Parlor" and "Mommy & Me Creations". To learn more about myself and my credentials in teaching, click here.
Today, I'd like to share a fun Fall activity, "The Fall Handprint Wreath". Materials Needed: - A paper plate - Fall colored construction paper (red, orange, brown, yellow, etc) -Pencil -Hole Punch - Glue - Safety Scissors - Pipe Cleaner, Ribbon, or Yarn. Instructions: 1) Trace your child's hand onto the fall colored construction papers. **Idea: trace every member of your family's hand-prints onto the construction paper, so everyone feels involved in one family wreath. 2) Cut the hand-prints out. 3) Cut out the center piece of your paper plate. 4) Glue your hand-prints on the plate. With your hole punch, punch a hole on the back of the plate and thread your pipe cleaner or ribbon through the hole to make your hanger. This is a fun activity and helps your kids with their fine motor skills, learn their colors and about the Fall season. Thanks for reading and I hope you have fun with your families by doing some fun crafty Fall activities!
