    Dandelion Handprint-Fingerprint Craft

    Dandelion Handprint-Fingerprint Craft

    I absolutely love making crafts with my kiddos. I especially enjoy making handprint and fingerprint crafts because I can lock a small piece of my daughter and son in time. For a fun spring idea, try making keepsake dandelions using handprints and fingerprints.

    Materials

    • Blue paper
    • White crayon
    • Green, white, and black paint
    • Paintbrush
    • Scrap cardboard
    • Cotton balls

    Instructions

    1. Pour some green paint on the scrap cardboard.
    2. Paint two green stems on the blue paper.
    3. Use a cotton ball to cover your child’s hand in green paint.
    4. Press a green handprint with the fingers open at the bottom of each stem.
    5. Wash the paint off your child’s hand.
    6. Use the white crayon to draw a circle around the top of each stem.
    7. Paint a small black circle at the top of each stem inside the white circle.
    8. Pour some white paint on the scrap cardboard.
    9. Use a cotton ball to apply white paint to your child’s finger.
    10. Press white fingerprints inside the white circles. Reapply the paint as needed.
