Supplies needed for the umbrella handprint:
- washable paints
- Wipes!! It helps to have these handy so you don’t make a complete mess of your table!
How to use the letter u handprint craft
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 to use red and green for our umbrella.
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 towards each other at the middle of the page with their fingers meeting at the umbrella handle.
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 U and the umbrella handle.
The most important thing though is just to have fun with this handprint art!
