Don't forget the handprint poems:

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But every day I'm growing --
I'll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away

So here's a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small

Put a date here
Love, put child's name here

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But everyday I'm growing big
And soon I'll be very tall
Then all my little handprints
Will be 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.

This isn't just any handprint as you can plainly see.
For it is a special handprint
Made by Me!
Along with this handprint
I send lots of hugs and kisses your way.
And ask that God bless you
On this Mother's Day!

I may outgrow the clothes I wear and the toys I play with too.
I may outgrow the songs I sing and all the pictures I drew.
I may outgrow this handprint, but when my growing is through,
Remember that I love you and I will never outgrow you!

These little hands will never grow,
They will always stay just so.
When I am grown and far away,
These little hands with you will stay.

I'm little and I know it
Though I help myself alot.
I leave my trail behind me
To help you find this little tot.

I hide and you come find me
By the fingerprints I leave
On the walls, tables, countertips
'Where are you?' when you can see.

So, I made a special handprint,
One that won't wipe away.
And you'll remember exactly when,
I was small and we would play

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 look upon this hand print plaque
That's hanging on your wall.
And memories will come back of me,
When I was very small.

My dirty little hand print
I've left on every wall
And on the drawers and table tops
I've really marked them all
But here is one that won't rub off
I'm giving it to you
Because I'm so thankful
for a mother just like you.

These little hands can wave hello
or put smudges on the wall.
They can fold in prayer, throw a kiss
or reach up when I say, 'so tall.'
They will clasp your hand for an Autumn stroll.
Or shape a dinosaur from clay.
But most of all, they will stay
with you when I'm grown and far away.

Tiny handprints grow to rely
On his parents to bring him up just right
His parents pray that when he's grown
He'll say their job has been well done.

Tiny handprints are ours to love
The sweetest gift from God above
A miracle that never is surpassed
How sad they grow up way to fast.
