Made this for my mom for her birthday. My 2 year-old's handprints were a perfect fit for a 2x2 magic, and the 5 year-old's single handprint was a perfect fit for the solved magic.

Wait, those are the actual handprints? I don't think I'd be brave enough to cut up mine!
Seriously though, I like it. It adds a personal touch to a puzzle that's already unique in itself. Awesome idea!

Clarification. They're not my handprints. They're the current handprints of my daughters. My two daughters just happen to have the correct sized hands so that one can fit on one side and the other fits on the other side.

Nope. It's a Magic and it's going to Grandma. I had to Google to find out who Bill Withers was (for the lazy, a singer-songwriter who wrote a song called Grandma's Hands)
