Colorful Hand Prints

Today, I wanted to do some more crafty activities with the little one and had to put my crafty hat on. Brainstorming on what I can come up with and seeing what I have around the house to be creative. Suddenly a light in my head started to blink! "Show Me Mama" was ready to start her crafty project for today. Do you know of any child that does not like to paint or does not like to have fun? I decided to do some painting around the house but not just regular old painting but hand printing. Lets get those pretty little hands dirty with paint. Here we go!

Supplies we need:

Old pillowcase
Paint bottles
Paper towel
Child or children (I have one at the moment, so that will be
good enough) LOL

We did this in the kitchen, since the sink is close by, we can use it to quickly wash up. First, start by placing the pillowcase on the table.

Pour your color on the plate. Have your little one place their hands in all the colorful paint. Let them press on the pillowcase and leave a colorful hand print. As you can see my Sophia just had a blast rubbing all the paint on her hand and pressing it on the pillowcase.
Add more colors to the pillowcase and be creative with all the handprints. Sophia used all the colors that I had on the table.

Repeat the process and leave more hand prints on the pillowcase until it is totally covered. Once it is done, wash those pretty little hands and let the pillowcase dry out on the table or outside. You can frame it or pin it on the wall. Voila! Now, we have a created a personal, beautiful and colorful art work. Love it!

What a great way to show off their beautiful colorful hand prints. This can be hung in the room are anywhere they want. It can be treasured forever and ever. Have fun creating this fun project and can't wait to read all your wonderful comments.

I used to do that with the little ones mine are grown up now..:(.. But we would paint cardboard and cut out the hand-print and make a magnet, use t-shirt paint and make sweatshirts for the grandparents for Christmas Hey we even did both hand and feet and a t-shirt of these prints that said "I was playing with my grandchildren!! " AND the grandparents wore them all the time, it was their favorite and then asked for t-shirt for the summer time.....

Handprint art is always so much fun! We've done so many cute projects too, and I can't wait when they are older to show them how small their hands used to be!
