Handprint Gnome Beard Craft
You probably have all of the supplies to make these fun little Christmas gnome handprints.
- cardstock (or if you want to print it on colored paper we love this colorful cardstock)
- washable paints (these are the paints we use for all of our handprint crafts)
- 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 gnome template:
This free gnome handprint template is free to print but is for personal use or classroom use only. Scroll to the end of the post to get the pdf file.
Print out the template below, it will print out on one full page and will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
Grab the supplies above and get creating!
Let the kids decide what color handprint they want to use. We decided to use grey for the gnome’s beard.
Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Cover both hands in either the same color or different colors, remember this is for their beards! Place their hands facing down from the nose of the gnome. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull the child’s hands up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprints.
Let it dry completely before adding the googly eyes. They can also color the gnome’s hat and the snowflakes if they want to.
