Family Handprint Art

Now that I have moved on to Valentine’s Day crafts, I thought it was as good a time as any to get to this craft that I have always wanted to do! A family handprint painting is a simple project and it really only takes a few minutes but a little patience with your little one while each step dries!

For this art project all you will need is:

  • Small Canvas (available in 2 packs at your local craft store for only $3-$4!)
  • 3 Colors of Acrylic Paint (more colors if you have more children
  • Marker

What to do:

This is super simple…

  • Pick which colors each family member will be and one by one make a handprint on top of another. Let each handprint dry 30-45 minutes before putting another handprint on top of it.
  • I would recommend using a pretty good amount of paint on your hands so that you get good coverage on the canvas.
  • If you find that a handprint is too light, just do it again straight on top of it!
  • That’s it! I wrote the year on the bottom so that I know in the future when we made the art project.

I think it would be a great addition to a little kids room, an office or even something to hang in a family room. It’s simple but i love how it shows each family member together as one.

Do you have a family art project recommendation? I’m always looking for new ones!

    I cannot even begin to tell you how much I like that handprint art. Well, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I will be making this craft at home this weekend!
