How many things can you think of that start with the letter H? House, heart, hair, hat, hammer, helicopter, horse, hummingbird and more many more!
Are you ready to use our hands and create hand print art that looks just like a house? Amanda from Artsy Momma has created the funnest keepsake. And I love how stickers were incorporated to help decorate the house!

Hello! How are you liking the hand print art alphabet series so far?
My preschooler and I are enjoying coming up with creative ways to make art that match the Letter of the Week crafts over here on Crystal & Co. This week’s post is Letter H is for House. Originally we made the house using prints from both hands. It looked okay, but then I decided to remake it last minute using just one hand print. I like it better with just the one but it’s still doable with the two.
Kids will love designing their own house with color choices, stickers, patterns, and so on. Ours is just a simple pink and purple house with a ‘doggie’ outside of it – 3 of my daughter’s favorite things!
Instructions for making the House Hand Print Art:
Make a hand print in a color of choice on a sheet of construction paper. My daughter chose to make a purple house.
Use a black marker to outline the print so that it resembles a house shape.
Draw a chimney on the top. Color in with marker.
Add a door and windows. My little one wants to make everything pink all the time so of course the door on her house is colored pink!
Make grass – optional.
Add stickers such as animals, flowers, trees, or anything else you might find in a yard – optional. Staying with the letter H theme, my daughter added hearts as decoration.
Write ‘H is for House’.
See you next week for a yummy-looking craft for the Letter I!
