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 downwards with their palm at the bottom of the final ice cream scoop. 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 I and the ice cream scoops.
