    1. Family Hands GarlandTrace your hands onto construction paper. Position your hands on the paper in ways in which you can fit as many tracings as possible on each piece. We had fun seeing how many hands per piece of paper we could achieve.
    2. Once you have traced your hands, cut each hand out.

    3. At the bottom of each hand, punch two holes, about an inch apart.

    4. Thread yarn through the holes in the hands and string as many hands as you want onto your yarn to form a garland.

      Next, hang your garland wherever you wish and then high five your family for a job well done!
