Using a marker, trace both of your hands. For tactile input, use the child's hand prints by painting his hands and stamping them on the construction paper.

Cut out the handprints and cut out 2 rounded squares.

Glue the hand part of the handprints together.

Glue the rounded square in the center of the handprints.

Cut a piece of string and glue to the center of the hands to make a bow tie.
