animal handprint paintings for baby

Remember these little paintings?
Well, I've finished them...except for the part E gets to do on each birthday...
My idea for these animal paintings was to create something that E could add to. He can put his adorable little handprint on these, at least until he's four! It will be fun to see how he grows with each year and this is something a bit less hokey than some of the handprint art I've seen out there. When he outgrows these paintings someday, I can paint over the handprints and pass them on to someone else's baby.
Here's E's one-year-old handprint. Yes, momma helped...

This owl's belly is ready for E's 2nd birthday.

He'll have to make a handprint on either side of the dragonfly. Poor design on my part!

We've got lots of salamanders in our yard -
by age four I think E will know ALL about them!
