A handprint and footprint calendar is a creative, unique way to document your child's growth. It also makes a cute gift idea and a keepsake that can be cherished forever. The 1st calendar I made with my son, I created over a month and made all the precious hand and footprints during that time. I then used it for the following year. To make it even more special, I wrote in the daily activities we did and family members birthdays. The 2nd calendar that I am currently in the process of making, is different. Instead, I am making a new design each month on 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and placing the new one on the refrigerator at the start of each month. At the end of the year, I will bind it together and make a fabulous cover for it. I also plan to add notes of any special memories that happened throughout the year and make a photo collage.
