This is perfect for kids ages 4 and up!
1 sheet green construction paper
Acrylic paint: brown, red, and white
2 large wiggle eyes
½ glitter red chenille stem
1 glitter gold pom-pom
3″ silver ribbon
White craft glue
How to make it:
Have your child write his/her name and the date on the back of the green construction paper.
Turn construction paper right side up.
Generously paint your child’s entire palm with brown paint.
Press your child’s hand and fingers onto the green paper, then lift straight up to avoid smearing.
Touch up any holes or gaps with a paintbrush and brown paint without destroying the handprint.
Use paintbrush to paint a “neck” below the handprint.
Glue wiggle eyes onto the handprint.
Roll the chenille into a tight, flat circle. Glue to the bottom of the palm print (see image).
Glue the ribbon onto the neck as a necklace.
Glue the gold pom-pom to the “necklace”.
Have child dip their finger into white paint and dot onto the border of the paper. Skip a space, leaving enough room to fit another fingerprint, then make another white dot. Continue around the border until done. Repeat this process with red paint in between the white dots.
Use black marker to draw a smile.
