Place their hands with their fingers pointing at each of the edges of the paper, they will need to do it at least 4 times placing their hands in a different direction in the middle each time.

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.
