This year we made our own cards that doubled as rakhi holders. As always, Little Mirchi chose the Rakhis she wanted to send to her cousin brothers. Once we got home we decided to make special cards to mail them with. Most of this project was completed independently by Little Mirchi herself. All I had to do was trace her hand and cut the card paper. If you have older children that can manage scissors on their own, this could be done by them start to finish.

Step Two

Have your little one color or paint the card stock paper. I found it was easier to have Little Mirchi paint all over before we cut out the hand prints. If painting, let dry before proceeding.

Make a slit on each side of the hand and tie your rakhis on the handprint cards.The slits help to hold the rake in place.
