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

Place their hands with their fingers pointing towards each other at the middle of the page with their fingers meeting at the umbrella handle.

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 U and the umbrella handle.
