Family Hand-print Tree: How about making a family hand-print tree that portrays the parent and child love that all families cherish (or they should cherish)?

  1. To start with, you will need a frame and a a poster-board. Draw a tree on the board using a pencil first (to make sure the branches are wide enough to give all the hands their proper space) and then color the tree using a brown acrylic paint.
  2. Now comes the fun part that everyone will enjoy. Paint your and your children's hands in different colors of acrylic paint, and print them on the poster-board. As acrylic paint is not toxic and can be easily washed off, your newborn baby can also take part in this.
  3. Ta-da! Your very own personalized hand-printed family tree is ready. You can write a nice little poem or quote on the poster-board to give it a more personal touch.

If you involve your other child(ren) in welcoming the new arrival (through such DIY family projects), they would welcome the new baby enthusiastically, and the parent and child bond will strengthen up. This eliminates sibling rivalry which is one of the greatest concerns of second-time parents.
