6 Handprint Art Activities for Toddlers. Check out all the fun things you can make with your kids to hang on the walls or as a keepsake gift for family. Kids love getting crafty and this is perfect project for letting your little ones artistic side shine.
Is there anything more precious than your child’s hand or foot print? How about their entire hand? You can use a large casting kit to make a mold of your child’s hands and feet to make a beautiful ornament that will last even after they are all grown up. Be warned though, these kits involve keeping still for a few minutes so if your child is a wriggler, then maybe it’s best to stick with a handprint! These six handprint art activities capture that moment when they were so little and turn it into meaningful keepsakes from your child’s first year, or a fun afternoon you and your toddler will both enjoy.
