Are you looking for a fun art project to do with the kids? Well, Linda from Night Owl Corner is here to share a super cute little keepsake you can do with the kiddos. It’s short and sweet and totally adorable. Take it away, Linda!
Greetings! I’m Linda from Night Owl Corner and I’m excited to be here today to share an adorable handprint craft. OK, I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for handprint / footprint crafts. They are so cute and easy, especially for the little ones who can’t do art projects on their own yet. Plus they make wonderful keepsakes so you can remember how sweet and tiny those little fingers and toes once were! I recently made a handprint lion with my daughter, and it turned out so cute. Here’s what you’ll need to make one of your own:
- White, yellow and brown construction paper
- Glue stick
- Yellow Washable Paint
- Foam Brush
- Black Marker
Start by using the foam brush to paint your child’s hand with the yellow paint. Stamp their hand with the fingers pointing down on the paper. Allow to dry. Cut thin strips of brown and yellow construction paper for the mane, and glue around the thumb after the handprint is dry. Use a black marker to draw on the eyes, nose and mouth.
