Kids Handprint Jellyfish Art: celebrate summer with this fun handprint kids craft!
Handprint Art for Kids
Crafting with my kids is one of my favorite things to do. I love watching them create and add personality to their crafts. There is so much learning that happens when a kid makes something. Handprint crafts have been around for years and years but they are still loved by children today as much as they were when our grandparents were doing it. This handprint jelly fish is a fun and simple way to celebrate summer and some fun underwater creatures.
Supplies Needed for Kids Handprint Jellyfish Art
- 1 sheet scrapbooking paper, for the base
- craft paint, your favorite colors
- Sponge Brush
- Sharpie pen or colored pencil
- 1 -2 sheets green construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Craft Glue
- Using a sponge brush, brush a thin layer of paint on the palm of your child’s hand. Have them press firmly, with their fingers slightly apart on the scrapbooking paper. Lift carefully. Let Dry. Turn the paper 180 degrees so the fingers are pointing downward to act as the jellyfish “tentacles.”
- Cut out small strips of green construction paper to look similar to seaweed. Using craft glue, glue the strips of green construction a paper to the bottom of the scrapbooking paper.
- Glue on googly eyes and draw some jellyfish tentacles with a matching colored pen or colored pencil. You can also add some small bubbles around the jellyfish.
