I am planing on making a Christmas ornament with my new granddaughter's hand print on it and giving it to her mommy and daddy for Christmas along with a note or poem. So what do ya'll think of these:

Sometimes you'll get discouraged
Because I am very small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But everyday I'm growing...
I'll be all grown-up someday,
And all the tiny fingerprints
Will surely fade away.
So here's a real hand print
Just so you can recall,
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.
OR:
This is the hand
You used to hold
When I was only
5 months old.
OR:
A special gift
so you can recall
how my hands looked
when I was small

How about.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
If you ever break this ornament
You will be too!

It sounds nice "Lou" it will be one of those "awhhh." moments

Roses are red
Violets are purple
Sugar is sweet and
So is maple syruple.

For over 40 years, my parents have always had a live tree for christmas. Before they throw it out, my father cuts a thin piece of the tree trunk (about the size of a drink coaster). He then coats it with varnish and drills a small hole at the top. My mother dates the wood ornaments and decorates them. Every year, it's still amazing for me to look at each ornament and remember holidays as a child.

What a fabulous tradition! Those are real pieces of your family's history hanging on every year's tree.

I was kind of leaning to that one also Sandy, because it is short I can write it on the ornament.

Doc that is a really cool tradition!

I taught Kindergarten for over 26 years. I always made handprints with the accompanying
poem (the first one you listed). During the holidays I run into former students/ parents while Christmas shopping. One of the first things they tell me is how much they have treasured that handprint and poem.

I actually had my 2 children make their handprints at 2 years old. I framed the prints along with the poem. They still hang in their bedrooms. By the way....my "children" are now 27 and 24 ! I will treasure these framed prints forever.

Select the poem that you think will be the most meaningful to the child's parents.

Good luck and have fun with your project!
