Fun Kissing Hand Handprint Puzzle for the 1st Day of School
I just saw the activity below on Little Giraffe's web site and decided I have to do it next year. I love to read The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn to my students. I looked for blank puzzles, but found them to be way too expensive to have to buy year after year. I searched ebay and found a Sizzix jigsaw puzzle die for only $6.99, which was less than the cost of the puzzles I could buy for one year. Now, I can't wait to do this activity! I created a printable with the poem to go along with it.
