Do you love doing hand print crafts with your little ones? Maybe kept a few from year’s past to look back at and reminisce about days gone by?
Today’s hand print craft is not only super cute, but it’s also great for spring/Easter!
Today we’re making hand print sheep!
Originally I planned on using black construction paper for the bodies, but I didn’t have black construction paper. So I traced the kids’ hands on white paper. This allowed my daughter to color her sheep pink (I didn’t have pink paper, either… Guess I’ll be running to Target…You know I love it!)
Unfortunately, my darling 2 year-old son didn’t feel like coloring his sheep. He got mad they were on white paper.
I retraced his on brown paper, and he was happy. Go figure.
Once you have your hand prints, cut them out. The thumb will become your sheep’s head, and the other 4 fingers will be legs. Draw an eye, and if desired a smile and nose, on the sheep’s head.
We ripped up cotton balls into 3-4 pieces each (my daughter loved doing this), and glued them onto the palm portion of the hand print to make wool.
Of course, no girl sheep is complete without a bow, so Peanut added one to each of her little sheep.
We took our Cat in the Hat faces down and taped our little flock to the pantry door. I have to say they give that corner of the kitchen a cute, spring feel.
Happy beginning of spring – now get crafting with your little one!
