When the kids were really little, I would always sing “I Love You A Bushel & A Peck” to them. It’s such a sentimental song for me. Now, I can preserve the song’s sweetness with the kid’s handprints. It’s double the sweetness!

Don’t handprints just make you melt? 

 

The plan was to glue a basket over the apple so the apple was inside, but I couldn’t cover up the cuteness. If you want to add a basket under your heart apple, this is what it might look like. 

Here’s what you’ll need to make this I Love You A Bushel & A Peck Craft:

  • White cardstock – I used a 12 x 12 inch
  • Washable Glue (I used clear, but in hindsight I would most definitely used a colored glue that turns clear later) 😉
  • Red glitter
  • Green glitter
  • Green glitter paper (for the leaf)
  • Scissors
  • Red marker or paint pen
  • Little hands and a wet towel to wipe little hands

  • (you’ll be working upside down for the first couple of steps) Spread some glue on one hand and with fingers pressed together place that down on the paper at an angle
  • Wipe that hand and move on to the next
  • With fingers pressed down going at the opposite angle crossing the fingers so they overlap – wipe that hand
  • Sprinkle red glitter over the hand prints
  • Use the glue to make a stem and sprinkle some green glitter 
  • Cut a leaf shape out of the glitter paper or use more glue to make a leaf and glue that on
