My kids love creating art. They love drawing, painting, and playing around with different art mediums. I often try out my arts and crafts ideas on them before taking it into the classroom. However, the other morning they inspired me with their idea. They were creating a birthday card for their grandmother and came up with this handprint art idea. I wanted to share it because it is completely child created and from the imagination of a young child. Could there be anything better???
My favourite part is that it includes my kid’s handprints. They started by tracing their hand with black marker for an outline. They spread their fingers out to look like the stems of flowers and then drew in colourful flowers over where their nails would be. My oldest added a line behind her fingers and in front to complete her vase.
I love the different colours that they used when creating their handprint vase. Any art with my kid’s handprints on it is always a favourite of mine. They added a very sweet poem and their card was ready! I know that their grandmother will love it!
I may try out this art in the classrom for a special occasion. It is easy, inexpensive and can be made more challenging depending on the grade.
