Christmas Handprint Crafts for Kids
The holidays can be a busy time of the year. Cookie exchanges, school programs, Grinch parties, other holiday gatherings keep the holiday season hustling. One of the ways my daughter and I like to relax from all the hustle and bustle is by making some simple Christmas and Winter crafts together. We loved making our Pinecone Christmas Trees, Popsicle Stick Gingerbread Houses, and our new favorite, our Popsicle Stick Elf.
These handprint cards can be crafted together in less than 30 minutes which is the perfect time to relax and make something fun together. We made three festive holiday Characters: Santa, Christmas Tree, and Rudolph the Reindeer.
Supplies to Make Handprint Christmas Cards
- Cardstock – red, brown, green, and black
- Gold glitter cardstock or foam

How to Make Handprint Christmas Cards
- Using your childs hand as a guide, cut out three handprints. Cut one out of green, brown, and red. For the brown one, the handprint will need to be reversed as I think it looks best with the thumb being on the right-hand side (looking at it).
- For Rudolph, just add two googly eyes and a big red nose.
- When you make the Handprint Christmas tree, add gems and a star on top!
- For the Handprint Santa, add a black stripe across the handprint and cut the excess off. Cut out a gold belt buckle to put on top of the stripe.
- Handprint Christmas Tree: Instead of using self-adhesive gems you can also use stickers, mini pom poms or sequins!
- Handprint Rudolph: add mini poms poms to his antlers and draw on a string of lights to look like Christmas lights!
- Santa: we liked him just the way he is but you can add a tuft of cotton balls to the top to look like his beard 🙂
