Last week we had lots of fun making hand prints with paint. It’s such an easy, quick activity, that I decided to feature the 10 best handprint craft ideas for kids here, so that you (and we) can try some more!
1. Glitter baby handprint gift
Amy at Lily & Bliss made this beautiful sparkly handprint canvas gift for her husband on Valentine’s day (from their daughter). Find her easy tutorial here.
2. Instant artwork: handprint owls
Jill at Meet the Dubiens made this adorable handprint owl with her daughter. I love the simplicity of this design – perfect for a child’s room. Here’s her step-by-step how-to.
3. The very hungry caterpillar
Another super simple idea from Think Crafts! - a handprint Very Hungry Caterpillar. This would make a great collaborative pre-school art project, with each child adding a handprint to make a very long caterpillar…
4. Family handprints framed gift
Jessie at Lilyshop suggests this framed family handprint maths for a Mothers’ day gift. I know I’d be very happy to receive one!
5. Handprint animal alphabet
How amazing is Maggy at RedTedArt? Check out her entire alphabet of handprint animals – utter genius!
6. Halloween handprint ghosts
Possibly the cutest and least-scary ghosts ever – this craft was created by J, Rainy Day Mum’s little one and you can see the full tutorial here.
7. Rainbow handprint flower
This colourful idea from Fun Family Crafts would make a great canvas gift for a grandparent or a wonderful group art project.
8. Fathers’ day handprint gift/card
This sweet idea for a Fathers’ day gift comes from Preschool Crafts. I think any new dad would treasure it!
9. Handprint fish
This fish handprint idea from LLM Calling is just so sweet – who knew a hand could look so much like a fish?!
10. Santa handprint Christmas card
Yes, I know it’s only September, but I really couldn’t resist this handprint Santa Christmas card from Spoonful.com. Why not bookmark or Pin this to make with your little ones in November and save yourself a fortune?
Last but not least, why not try my favourite handprint craft? Use your hand to make tiny baby footprints for a new baby card (too cute)!
