Paper Bag Handprint Eagle Craft

If this Paper Bag Handprint Eagle Craft was just the typical handprint craft then it would be cute enough. There’s nothing better than using our little one’s hands in a cute holiday project. Except when we also use our own for a mom and me layered handprint keepsake.
