handprint art ideas

Spring is definitely in the air and these spring inspired hand and finger print art ideas will be a popular choice with preschool children.

The sheep’s body is simply made from fingers dipped into white paint and then pressed onto a dark coloured card. The head and legs are made by cutting shapes from black paper. Finally the pictures are finished by sticking on wiggly eyes.

Hand Print Flower

Coloured hand prints are used for the petals of the flower and 2 green hand prints for the leaves. A circle of coloured paper can be used to create the centre of the flower. The petal and leaf hand prints should be cut out and glued onto the paper and finally a stem drawn on.
