One size fits all. This handmade gift is fit for anyone with an oven or a grill! Think Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, Birthdays and Christmas. Made with love for aunties, mommies, daddies, grandparents and anyone else who might love a helping hand from a little loved one.

And who doesn’t love a helping hand?
Or the hand prints of little loved ones?
To share a ‘helping hand’ you will need just four items…
To create a Helping Hand Oven Mitt…
Pour fabric paint onto a plate then have the person attached to the little hand rub their hand around the plate until their hand is covered with a layer of fabric paint.
Firmly press the painted hand down on to the mitt; then have a helper hold the mitt down while lifting the little hand carefully off of the oven mitt to avoid smearing the paint. The hand and mitt will ‘stick’ a little when separating.
Allow time for the hand print to dry then use a fabric marker to write a message (and/or name & date) on the oven mitt. I wrote ‘a helping hand’ and added a heart on our mitts; then below that line my little guy wrote his name. Once the writing has dried completely the helping hand is ready to be shared! Adorable.
A quick tip: The hand print will ‘pop’ better on smooth fabric as more of the hand shape is transferred to the fabric. I suggest not using fabric mitt with texture similar to terry cloth.
