Welcome to the Handprint the Alphabet series for kids! We’re looking to learn and get creative with our preschoolers this summer. Today is letter “P,” and this is probably my most favorite of all the letter projects that we have done so far in the series! Today’s project involves painting one little hand two different colors with an addition of a small amount of extra art. Be sure to pop over and check out my Tips for Great Handprint Art with Kids post if you’ve never done handprint art with preschoolers before. I share a few pointers plus my go-to supplies!
Supplies (may include affiliate links):
- White paper
- Paint (yellow and green)
- Dark yellow or orange marker or colored pencil
Apply a thick coat of yellow paint to the palm of one hand. Apply a coat of green paint to the fingers of the same hand. Lay the hand in the center of the paper. Apply gentle pressure to the hand, and then lift it up. Clean off the hand. Let the paint dry completely.
Using the marker or colored pencil, draw diagonal lines across the yellow paint.
Thanks for following along, and I’ll see you back on Monday with the letter “Q!” I’d love to hear if you are joining in on the series with your kiddo. Feel free to post photos on my Facebook wall or tag me on Instagram!
