What is a handprint?

Handprint art ideas are one of the easiest and best projects for both the classroom and home. Here is why these types of interactive projects are a must this Halloween season.

  • Handprint crafts are one of the earliest art forms. Even babies can do it!
  • Handprint crafts give a time capsule of information if you repeat the same project.
  • More than one hand can get in on the project even our feet.
  • A perfect handprint is not required!  
  • Getting our hands all in gooey paint can be a lot of fun.
  • Giving the gift of handprint art is something that is enjoyed by anyone.

The best paint to use for handprints are:

  • Non-toxic, washable paint ,  Traditionally, Tempura paint was the best option for creating handprint art because it is not permanent and it easily is washed off. Now there are other options including paints that are labeled “washable” which generally are marketedto children that are toddlers and preschoolers because of how easy they wash off of clothing.  
  • Washable paints are not permanent. Acrylic paints are permanent and depending it also depends on how well that they wash. All three of these types of paints are water-based which is a must when it comes to clean up!

Kids love making handprint art. What is more fun than dipping your hands in paint?

It’s incredible just how many ways you can turn a simple handprint into a work of art. All you need is a little creativity and a few ideas. 

Children love getting their hands all painty to create art!
