Letter B Handprint Craft
This is such an easy and fun handprint craft and a great way to learn the alphabet.
Kids love getting their hands covered in paint, and I have to admit I love it too! It’s so much fun allowing the kids to be creative while learning.
This free printable letter B handprint template is free to print but is for personal or classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the page to get the pdf file.
Supplies needed for the bee handprint craft:
- washable paints
- kids glue
- googly wiggle eyes (Optional)
- Wipes!! It helps to have these handy so you don’t make a complete mess of your table!
How to use the letter B handprint template
Print out the template below, it will print out on one full page. Make sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see it in your emails within 5 minutes.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
Let the kids decide what color handprints they want to use, we have chosen bright yellow for our bees wings.
Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hands. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Place their hands with their fingers pointing up to the sky, with their palms at the top of the bee. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull your child’s hand off really gently to avoid any smudges.
Let the paint dry completely before coloring in the letter B and the body of the bee.
The most important thing though is just to have fun with this handprint art!
What are the educational benefits of alphabet handprint crafts?
By adding art when learning the letters of the alphabet you are promoting both auditory learnings with kinesthetic learning.
The student may know the letter B, but adding a handprint to something beginning with the letter will help them retain the information.
