This project would be perfect for deployed military parents or family members and friends living far away.
Supplies Needed; Print out of template (below), red yarn, red construction paper, glue, hole punch, and scissors.
Directions; Using the red construction paper, fold it in half and trace child's hands (using a pencil). Cut out the hand outline (the fold will allow for 2 hand shapes to be made). Use your hole punch to put one hole in the palm of each hand. Next take the red yarn and measure the child's "wingspan" (from palm to palm, across their chest). Print out the template (below) and decorate as desired, once decorated, use the hole punch to put two holes in the top of the decorated template. Now thread your "wingspan" yarn through the decorated template, and through the holes of each hand and glue ends to back of palm. Allow to dry.
