- Paint the child's left hand with a thick coat of SC-8 Just Froggy. Position the hand in the bottom right quadrant of the circle (fingers down) making sure to leave a border of blue around the handprint.
- Re-coat the left hand using SC-8 Just Froggy and position it perpendicular and to the left of the other print in the upper left quadrant of the circle. Repeat for the third handprint.
- Using a No. 2 pencil, draw a circle around the "earth" approximately ¾" from the edge of the "earth." Then, using the pencil, write the phrase," I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD" along the circular line. Repeat the phrase until you run out of space. Then, add three periods (i.e., "...") until you reach the first "I" of the phrase.
