Remember making handprint turkeys? Well, handprints are also great for making other crafts as well! Today’s post is all about summertime handprints!

From Activity Village

Create a sunburst sun using different colored construction paper. This is a great craft project if you are working with more than one child! They can all come together to make a cool project for the classroom.

From Silly Eagle Books

Handprints make good claws, and footprints make great lobster bodies!

From Random Handprints Blog

This project is great for older children. The handprints make great foundations for butterfly wings, and they can decorate it afterwards!

From Rifton

Who knew handprints also make pretty flowers!

From Brandine

Make a funny butterfly!

Not only will children have a fun time making these, they can also hang up their creations afterwards for a cute piece of home decor for the family. Children LOVE to have their artwork displayed in the home!
