Most of the time I think my kids are perfect angels, although sometimes my angels are put to bed early depending on how angelic or un-angelic they were that day, but regardless of what time they made it to bed I always feel blessed they are mine (aren’t all kids angels even without a halo!?! 🙂 Since the holiday season is right around the corner we made angel handprints for Christmas. You could use the angels to decorate the walls or make homemade cards–grandparents will love them!
Handprint Crafts are one of our favorite types of crafts like our recent Handprint Keepsake Ornament. The kid’s love making them and watching their hand transform into art.
Handprint Angel Craft
|Pin me please! 🙂|
Craft paper (I like using Cardstock-affiliate link for handprint crafts because the paper is thick and holds the paint better)
Marker (I used a Metallic Gold Pen-affiliate link)
1. Coat child’s hand with paint, making sure to get a nice even layer.
2. Have child place thumbs together in the air and then gently press hands down in the middle of the paper and gently life their hands up. Make a circle for the head at the top of the wings (top of palms) and set aside to let the paint dry.
3. Use the pen to decorate the handprints and make them look like angel wings. I outlined the top of the wings, drew a triangle without a point for the body, added sleepy eyes with eyelashes for my daughter and no eyelashes for my son (at their request), and drew a halo on the head.
Now your done, don’t forget to date the picture to make it the perfect keepsake.
