A Person's A Person

My FAVORITE line …of all time (channeling my inner Seuss, don’t mind me)..A person’s a person no matter how small!

We kick off the craft time by reading the story together and talking about why people matter! Why everyone is important and how we can show, even strangers, kindness. I keep the discussion light and sweet because my babes are small but you do you, mama!

Supplies & Prep

  • White paper (I cut one piece in to 4 squares for minis)
  • Light blue paint (I didn’t have light blue so I mixed some white and darker blue)
  • Teeny amount of red or pink paint for the clover (I actually used a red crayon!)
  • Sponge or paint brush to paint little hands
  • Black permanent marker
  • Wipes (for wiping painty hands)
  • And the book, of course!!

There’s not a ton of prep involved here.

  • Gather the above supplies
  • Squirt paint on to a small plate (or right on to the sponge for less clean up)

  • Spread paint on cute little hands with sponge or paint brush
  • Press firmly on paper then remove carefully (removal is where it can all go wrong!)
  • Let print dry while you wipe up painty hands
  • If you’re using paint for the clover add it now, if you’re using crayon or marker, it can wait.
  • Once dry, add Horton touches with black permanent marker. Don’t forget to add “A person’s a person no matter how small!”

Voila! You’re done!!! Fast and easy. I hope you treasure your little keepsakes and had fun getting messy with your minis!
