Congratulations! You’ve done the impossible and survived your baby’s first year. After blowing out the candles and smashing the cake, commemorate this momentous occasion with an awesome DIY art project to adorn your walls made by your one and only little artist.

Give Me Five

A first birthday is a fantastic time to start a yearly family tradition, and this idea from Mama. Papa. Bubba. is perfect. Simply paint a small canvas a fun color, then add your baby's handprint (or footprint!) in a contrasting color. Create a new canvas each year and watch your kiddo grow before your eyes.
