Kids Handprint Jellyfish Art: celebrate summer with this fun handprint kids craft!
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 kids 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.
- 1 sheet scrapbooking paper, for the base
- Apple Barrel® craft paint, your favorite colors
- Sponge Brush
- Sharpie pen or colored pencil
- 1 -2 sheets green construction paper
- Googley eyes
- Craft Glue
Our favorite go-to-paint for kids crafting is Apple Barrel® It’s non-toxic which is perfect when working with kids and it also washes off of their hands easily.
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.
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 the googley eyes and draw some jellyfish tentacles with pen or colored pencil.
My little guy loved showing everyone that walked into our home his newest craft. His favorite part was actually washing the paint off of his hands so he could see the water change colors 🙂
