Craft supplies needed for the letter m handprint craft:

How to use the m is for monkey handprint printable:
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 brown for our monkey.
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 pointing downwards with their palms underneath the monkey’s face. 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 M and the monkey head.
The most important thing though is just to have fun with this handprint art!
Why not take a trip to the zoo when you are finished, so the kids can actually see some monkeys? If you do download our free zoo scavenger hunt printables for even more fun.
