I am sure there are versions of this craft all over , I haven’t seen any lately but here is our take on a fun 4th of July craft. It’s the first craft we’ve done since the baby arrived and it was awesome to get back to “normal” making it with my little man. I like it because it’s simple but really adorable.
- Gather your materials. You will need a piece of white and a piece of black construction paper, red and blue paint, glue, 2 plates, scissors and glitter.
- Start by putting the paint on the plates.
- Dip your child’s hand in , get it well covered.
- Print on to the white paper.
- Repeat with other hand and color. We did 2 hands each.
- If your child is like mine have extra paper on hand to keep finger painting with the extra paint. This gives the hand prints time to dry some as well .
- Let the hand prints dry a little and cut out.
- While I cut them my son washed his hands, my sink, and my breakfast bowl… I wasn’t complaining.
- Although I ended up doing all the gluing because he was having fun in the sink. So now glue the hands together to look like fireworks.
- Add glue for the glitter. If the paint is still wet, you won’t need glue on the hands.
- He came back for glitter, imagine that!
- Let dry.
