Preschool Craft Corner: Character and Creature Creations

Come create these super fun handprint creatures and characters! Get your hands on (and in) some paint and follow along.

Handprint Characters and Creatures

These hand print creatures and characters are adorable, and super fun. What’s entertaining for early learners – nothing is more fun than being messy –  also makes a beautiful handprint keepsake.

Send a picture of your artwork to us at summerreading@tnrd.ca for a chance to be featured in next week’s newsletter and blog post.

Materials Required

  • skin-friendly paint (finger paint is great)
  • a black sharpie or a marker
  • white craft glue (liquid is preferable, but a glue stick will work)
  • a paint brush or a surface to put paint on
  • googly eyes (optional)
  • paper
  • paper towel, rags, or wet wipes
Step 1

Choose your design and the colour you need for your hand print.  Paint your hand or dip your hand in your paint.  A few designs to try might be

  • an apple
  • a kite
  • an elephant
  • an octopus
  • an umbrella

What other ideas can you think of?

Step 2

Press your hand onto your paper, then peel it off slowly. 

You can make your handprint face any direction.  What could you create if your fingers pointed toward the bottom of the page?

Step 3

Let your hand print dry.  You can then add any details you want to add to your creation.

Step 4

Finish your design by writing out your title!  

Have fun making your handprint friends!
