We all know how quickly little ones grow, and it is so nice to have a keepsake from the baby years to look back on. With Gemma and Jacob, we have their hand and footprints, made with paint. They are truly lovely memories to look back on, but I do remember just how messy a business it was making those prints!
That’s why I was very excited to be offered the chance to review an inkless print kit from Pretty Raine. No ink, paint, mess or fuss – just an easy peasy way to capture those precious memories.
So how does it work? The kit contains printing paper, and a magic packet which contains a yellow wipe. It is just that – a small yellow piece of material that you simply wipe over the hands and feet. No mess, no paint all over your hands, sofa and clothes. I also found it much nicer for Max – paint on their little hands and feet must feel very cold and strange – this just leaves a very slight ‘dampness’ on the skin.
You then just gran the printing paper and press the hand or foot onto it. Hold for a few seconds….and that’s it! The print appears straight away, but does darken over time, so don’t worry if it appears too light to start with.
Cleaning up is easy too – just grab a baby wipe, and give your little ones hands a quick wipe over!
