    Hi everyone,

    I've got a pregnancy book with a space for hand and foot prints which I wanna do while Trey is still tiny.

    I'm struggling to find some ink or paints to use, I've looked on amazon and there's mixed reviews on the few that came up so I'm a bit wary as I wouldn't want him to get a reaction.

    Had anyone done this? Can you recommend any kiddies paints?

    Thanks

    Xxxxxxxx

    Good luck when you do it, me and my OH done foot and hand prints to put in my Mother's Day card and we had to do loads to get a good set! She would not open her hands....nightmare! But worth it in the end :)

    If I was you I would do them on paper and then the ounces that come out the best can be cut out and stuck into your box :)

    Good luck! X

    I used a special ink pad for his feet and ink wipes for his hands, the feet were easy, the hands were more hassle than it was worth!
