Your baby’s first years are so precious, and even more fleeting.
Whether for your own beautiful baby, or as a gift for a baby shower, the best baby handprint kits make for perfect keepsakes.
While it’s true that any kit will look great with a picture of a newborn in it, we found the best options available online.
Most baby handprint kits are composed of a square of clay surrounded by a wooden frame which includes a space for a photograph of your baby.
Importantly, the best baby handprint kits include entirely non-toxic clay that will not stick to your baby’s hands or feet.
Many of the kits available for sale are similar. While there may not be a single best clay baby handprint kit, we have listed below our top four choices.
All four baby handprint kits are high-quality and approved by reviewers and our readers.
Baby clay handprint kits make a perfect addition to your baby’s nursery and are super easy to complete and display.
HOW TO USE A BABY HANDPRINT KIT
Unlike a standard photograph frame, there are a few additional steps involved in taking your kit from box to wall:
- Remove clay from packaging and knead for several minutes until soft
- Place clay in frame
- Smooth out clay with rolling pin or mug
- Place your baby’s hands or feet in clay
- Allow to dry for 48 hours
- Insert photographs
- Hang and enjoy the memories!
WHERE TO DISPLAY YOUR BABY HANDPRINT KIT
When it comes to keepsakes for our infant, we believe the baby handprint kit to be among the best options – when it comes to sentimentality and value.
Bronzed shoes certainly have their place, but they are expensive and harder to display (let’s be real – bronze just doesn’t match with much).
Baby handprint kits, however, are affordable, tasteful, and easy to hang anywhere.
Of course, the nursery is a great places to hang your baby’s handprints.
However, with today’s selection of kits, there is a clay and frame color to match any color scheme in your home.
As a result, more and more parents are displaying their baby handprint kits all over the house; including the living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
We love hearing from parents who have used location specific photographs – such as pictures of their infant in the tub – when deciding where to hang their kit.
