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 “W.” Have you been enjoying watermelon this summer? We sure have! Cold watermelon in the refrigerator is an ongoing scenario at our house in the summer. Naturally, “W” is for Watermelon! 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):
- Paint (two different colors of green preferred for this craft)
- Green marker or colored pencil
With one of the green colors, paint stripes on one hand, leaving blank spaces for the other green. Fill in those black spaces with the other green.
Place the hand on the center of the paper so that the hand is horizontal. Apply gentle pressure to the hand, and then lift it up. Clean off the hand. Let the paint dry completely.
Use the colored marker or pencil to draw an oval watermelon shape around the hand.
Thanks for following along, and I’ll see you back tomorrow with the letter “X!” 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!
