These little hands are a sweet treasure and would make a great gift for any parent or grandparent. A bonus was the joy my kids had watching their hand cut-out shrink to the tiny size of a fairy, as my daughter put it.

How We Did It

Shrinky Dink Handprint Keychain
Plain shrink form sheets are available in any craft store and are a great way for kids to personalize little treasures.

I traced both my children's hands on a shrink form sheet.

Emma wrote her name right on her hand using a permanent marker. Next, I helped to cut the hands out.

I used a large hole punch to make a hole for the key ring. If you don't have a large punch just use the standard size several times to make a larger hole.

Onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet they went and into the oven. I followed my shrink form instructions and placed them in a 300 degree oven for just a minute or so. They curl up and then flatten out and that's how you know they're done.
