I LOVE doing kid crafts that involve my girl’s hands. It is so fun to have something that we can look back and see how they have grown. I was telling some friends about this fun project I had up my sleeve and they wanted in so we had a fun little party making these cute Ghostly Handprints – Halloween Kid Craft. I have to say it was actually nice to have the extra hands helping too. With little ones and paint you can never have too many eyes watching. 😉
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own: Small canvas (I used 6×6, but if you have more kids you could do a longer one with all their hands on one. I think that would be SUPER cute!) Black paint white paint (I used a glossy paint) glitter silver pen
I pre-painted the canvas so that I wouldn’t have to worry about doing it with the kiddos around.
I put some white glossy paint on plate and then painted the kiddos hands and helped them place their hands on the canvas.
Then quickly, sprinkled some glitter over the paint.
Shake off the excess glitter and then find a place for the ghosts eyes and mouth.
On some of the prints, like the one above, there were perfect black spots left open for the mouth. It was so fun to see the different shapes each hand made and how they each turned out.
Don’t you think they are so cute? What fun Halloween projects have you made with your kiddos?
