Hand print crafts are always popular, not to mention they make wonderful keepsakes! Make one each year to chart your child’s growth, make extras for relatives too! This makes a great class project as well.

You will need

1 sheet of colored construction paper (except really dark colors)

handful of cottonballs

white craft glue

black acrylic paint

1 small wiggle eye

Sharpie marker, crayon or pen

6″ colored ribbon paint brush

If you make this project

we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page !

What you do

// Be sure to write the child’s name, age and the year the project was created on the back of the construction paper. Paint the palm of your child’s hand with black paint. Immediately press hand onto paper to create handprint. While paint is drying, wash off child’s hand with soap and water. Glue cottonballs to the palm part of the handprint, overlapping the fingers slightly. Glue a wiggle eye onto the thumb. Use marker to draw on an ear. Tie ribbon into a bow and trim excess. Glue onto “neck” area. Use marker to write “Happy Easter” across the top of the project.
