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 “X.” Did you know that I used to be a radiologic technologist before having the triplets? So “X” definitely stands for X-ray for me! 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 (black and white)
Apply a thick coat of black paint to one hand. 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 “bone” features on the hand. You can use traditional paint, but puffy paint also works well because it comes in the handy applicator.
Thanks for following along, and I’ll see you back tomorrow with the letter “Y!” 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!
