This is a very easy craft that the youngest child can help with and makes a beautiful keepsake.

Optional:  In all options below paste cotton balls or a bit of cotton batting, or strands of wool yarn over the body template.  Glue head on top.
   Option 1: Trace the hand on the bottom area of the template.  Optional: Color the templates.  For example, color black for a Baa, Baa Black Sheep theme.  Cut out and assemble as indicated on the template.
   Option 2:  Trace the hand on black construction paper, cut out.  Color the template pieces, cut out and assemble.
   Option 3:  Use paint to make a handprint on sturdy paper, wait to dry, cut out and assemble the body and head

If it is a  small toddler hand the templates will be too big.  Have them glue cotton balls directly on the handprint's palm area and draw eyes and mouth on the thumb area.

Other decorations:  Older children can color the body area and make swirl designs with glue and paste strands of wool yarn over the swirl. designs.

Tape a ribbon or string to the back for a nice ornament -- and/or  write a message in the back (age and dated).
