DIY Halloween Hand Print Canvas

I have had extremely sensitive skin for as long as I can remember! Just last week (while my sister was visiting from out of state) she suggested that I try out a face cleaner that has been working wonders on her skin. Silly me completely forget to check the ingredients and just two days after applying it to my skin, my face was completely covered in hives and my eyes almost swollen shut. I spent the next several days looking like I had a sunburn on my face and doing everything I could to get my face back to normal. Things like this have been happening to me ever since I was a kid and unfortunately my six year old son inherited my sensitive skin. Several years ago I bought a new detergent and after one wash, both of us were covered in hives.

There is nothing worse than when your child has an allergic reaction to a new product! What many people don’t understand is that it can prevent them from having fun. Certain actives can cause more irritation. When I was growing up I did swimming lessons at the local pool, I remember my skin getting painfully sore from the chlorine. I don’t want my son to ever suffer that pain and irritation, so I always do my best to make sure I avoid an allergic reaction at all cost. That means reading labels and using products that are free of harsh chemicals.

How To Make A DIY Halloween Hand Print Canvas!

The first step is to paint your blank canvas in a color of your choice, we went with purple and orange for our background colors. Allow them to fully dry before moving on to the next step.

The next step is all of my children’s favorite part… get their hands in the paint! If you have a toddler, you can also do a footprint since they have smaller feet.
