Handprint Santa

Free Custom Photo Calendars

Turn your hand into a cute Santa craft.

What You’ll Need:
*Construction paper, any color, plus a square of red
*White, brown, and pink paint
*Paintbrush
*Cottonballs
*Glue

Preparation:
*Have paper towels or wipes on hand to clean up as soon as the handprint has been placed on the paper.

Activity:
*Paint your child’s hand white and place in the center of the construction paper. Turn the paper upside down – the fingers will be Santa’s beard and the palm print will be his face. Use the tips of fingers to paint eyes & nose (brown) and cheeks (pink).


*Allow to dry. Meanwhile, cut the red construction paper into a triangle whose bottom edge is the width of the bottom of the hand (or the top of Santa’s head) for Santa’s hat. Glue the hat in place. Place a dot of glue at the top of the hat and a row of glue along the bottom. Let your child put cotton balls on the glue to create the trim. Allow to dry.

*Send us a picture of your conductors we may post it to our site! info@mycalendarmaker.com.
