How to use the e is for elephant 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 handprint they want to use, we have chosen the traditional gray for our elephant.
Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Place their hand with their fingers down, with their palm at the side of the elephant’s tail and next to the eye. 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 E and the tail of the elephant.
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 E, but adding a handprint to something beginning with the letter will help them retain the information.
