10 Amazing handprint craft ideas for kids
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, using coloured paper – 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 using a long canvas. 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!
Washable paint for kids is best for this.
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. How amazing would it be to do this in fluorescent paint?!
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.
Washable poster paint is perfect for this 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, especially presented in a nice frame…
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?!
Non-toxic finger paint is perfect for younger artists.
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?
Buy Christmas card blanks here.
Last but not least, why not try one of my favourite handprint craft ideas? Use your hand to make tiny baby footprints for a new baby card (too cute)!
