Here is an unusual craft idea which girls will enjoy! it is a Hindu tradition to paint pretty designs onto the hands and feet at festivals and weddings and in some countries it is traditional to paint lovely henna "mehndi" designs on the hands for celebrations such as Eid.
You will need:
Skin colour paper or card
Brown coloured pen
Draw around your hand on the paper.
Decorate the hand shape with the pen - you can do a Google image search to get some inspiration! Older kids can really go to town with their designs, but younger children can produce a very effective hand too.
Cut out the hand, date and mount.
