Letter “S” Sheep Handprint Art for Preschoolers

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 “S.” This is probably my least favorite project in the series. The sheep just didn’t turn out the way that I had pictured it in my head. Maybe it would be better with cotton balls instead of the white paint for the wool? I don’t know, but feel free to try it of the paint isn’t tickling your fancy. 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!


Letter "S" Sheep Handprint Art for Preschoolers


Supplies (may include affiliate links):

  • White paper
  • Paint (black and white)


Apply black paint to one entire hand. Place the hand on the center of the paper, keeping in mind that the fingers are the legs of the sheep. The thumb is the head/neck of the sheep. Apply gentle pressure to the hand, and then lift it up. Clean off the hand. Let the paint dry completely.

Use the white paint to make circles for the sheep’s wool. I had 3D paint on hand, so that is what we used to make the circles. But regular paint will work just as well (and maybe even better?).
