We love Handprint Crafts and Christmas so of course we needed to make a Santa handprint craft to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. With a few coats of paint and one adorable little hand you can make Santa to hang on your wall, turn into a card (I’m sure grandma and grandpa would love one), make into a gift tag, and keep forever to remember how small your child’s hand used to be for years to come.

Supplies:

Tan paper-affiliate link (I like using cardstock for handprint crafts because it doesn’t wrinkle from the paint)
White paint-affiliate link

Black and red pen

Scissors

Directions:

Paint child’s fingers white to make Santa’s beard.

Paint the top portion of child’s hand red and their thumb to make Santa’s hat. Leave the middle of their palm empty.

Gently press their hand onto the tan paper to make the print. I like to put my hand on top of the fingers to keep them from wiggling and give them a baby wipe right after to make sure paint doesn’t end up everywhere. Set it aside to dry.

Cut the handprint out.

 

Add eyes and a cherry nose with the pens.

You can glue santa to a folded piece of paper to make a homemade card, tie a ribbon at the top to make an ornament or gift tag, or hang on the walls for some added Christmas cheer.
