Christmas Handprint Crafts

Hand Print Santa Craft

One of the perks of having a little one in Kindergarten is seeing all the fun crafts they bring home from school.  My daughter’s teacher last year was the best, and always had Kaylee coming home with the cutest crafts using her handprints – which I’m always a little partial too.  I snapped some pictures from our Christmas collection in case you were needing some ideas to capture your kids little paws before they grow another inch.

Speaking of that-wouldn’t it be fun to pick one craft to do every year with their hand print and then let them see how much bigger it gets every year?

I loved the hand print Santa above so much that I ended up making one with my three year old too.  For the handprint you can use either card stock or white craft foam-whatever you have on hand.  The rest of the supplies are red and white felt for the hat, googly eyes, red and white pom pom for the hat and nose, and cotton balls for the beard.  Then just glue some ribbon on the back for hanging.

I love these snowmen on the ornament.  Just get a little white paint on their palms and fingers, have them cup the ornament in their palm and then after the paint dries draw on the top hats, eyes, nose, and mouth.

Got to love the little Rudolph the red nosed reindeer! After the hand print dries, all you have to do is draw on the hoofs, antlers, and eye, and glue on a little bell and little red pom pom.

Another Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, but just his head with two hand prints, one on top of the other to make a out the face and antlers.  A little paint, googly eyes, red pom pom, and a bow (optional of course) are all you need for this one.  I think it’s cute how she put it on the stocking.

Here are a few more fun ways I found to make some handprint crafts for Christmas:

You know to use washable paint, right? Of course you do…but just in case :)

Happy hand printing!!

Love these ideas Aubrey. Thanks for posting them and getting me motivated to do some fun crafts with the kids this season.

i’m jealous. The only craft kate has ever come home with this entire year from Kindergarten is a Thanksgiving placemat… it just happened to be handprint turkeys. I guess I should do some of your ideas and make up for the lack of crafts in kingergarten.

Kaylee had an exceptional teacher last year that went above and beyond anything I’ve seen! She ruined us for our others girls because I’ll be comparing other Kinder teachers to her and I’m afraid we won’t find her match! I will also have to do these other fun things with my girls! :-)
