Here are several, there are lots more, and we change words to go with the time of year/activity. I am sure I read the same idea somewhere else on the site but cannot find it again!


1
Sometimes I might upset you
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
on furniture and walls.

But everyday I grow a bit
And soon I'll be so tall
That all those little fingerprints
Will be so hard to recall.

So here's a special handprint
Just so that you can say
This is how my fingers looked
When I placed them here today


2
I miss you when we're not together
I'm growing up so fast
See how big I've gotten
Since you saw me last?

As I grow, I'll change a lot,
The years will fly right by.
You'll wonder how I grew so quick
When and where and why?

So save this card in a safe place
So that you can recall
Lots of special memories
Of me when I was small.

3
My dirty little handprint
I've left on every wall
And on the drawers and tabletops
I've really marked them all
But here is one that won't rub off
I'm giving it to you
Because I am so thankful
For a (mother/father/gran) just like you!



4
These little hands can wave Hello
Or put smudges on the wall
They can fold in prayer, throw a kiss
Or reach up so very tall
They'll clasp your hand for a little stroll
Or shape a ball from clay
But most of all, they'll stay with you
When I'm grown up and far away


5
There used to be so many
Of my finger prints to see
On furniture and walls and things
From sticky, grubby me.
But if you stop and think awhile
Youíll see Iím growing fast
These little moments disappear
You canít bring back the past.
So here is a small reminder
To keep, not throw away
Of tiny hands and how they looked
To make you smile someday

Thankyou Inge for taking the trouble to type them all out. I have only heard one of them before.

It was good of Inge to type them up for everyone. I think I must be a very strange and cold hearted person as I found them all to be far too icky and cheesy. However, I will admit to using no.1 as most parents do like that kind of thing and I wouldn't let my personal views stop me from doing anything I think others would like. ( I bet you all feel sorry for my own children having a mum like me! :o )

Ok Mousebat - hate to say it but i too find them too much- but parents like them and so do others, I bow to the freedom of choice and use them occasionally (under pressure)

if you think they are cheesy how about this one-

Make a small box (Or buy one) and each child decorates it with sequins etc etc, get the child to catch a kiss inside the box (they all try to look for it) tie it up with ribbon and add the following rhyme

Whenever you are lonely
Or even feeling blue
You only have to hold this gift
And know I think of you
you never can unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied
just hold the box close to your heart
its filled with love inside.

:o
