Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!

Place their hand with their fingers pointing to the bottom of the paper, with their palm just under the core of the apple. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.

Pull your child’s hand off really gently to avoid any smudges.

Let the paint dry completely before coloring in the letter A and the leaf of the apple.
