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

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…
