Are you keeping up with all of our hand print art craft ideas we are sharing each week. This week we tackle the letter D and use our hand print to make a dog!
Remember, at the end of this post we have more letter of the week activities you can use as your teach your the alphabet to your preschooler! Lots of hands on learning!
It’s week four of our hand print art alphabet series. Today’s craft is Letter D is for Dog. They are my 3 year old’s absolute favorite animal. She was more than excited to turn her little handprint into a ‘doggie.’ I think it turned out so cute! We also added grass made with fingerprints. If you have a pet dog, it would be fun to make the craft look like him/her.
Instructions for making the hand print dog:
1. Make a brown handprint with the finger pointed down.
2. Add a brown thumbprint at the tip of the thumb.This creates the head area.
3. Paint the pointer finger using black paint – just to where the knuckle bends. Press it on the thumb next to the head. This creates the ear.
4. Use markers to draw on an eye, nose, mouth, collar, lines on the paws, and a tail (or paint the tail).
5. Write D is for Dog.
6. Paint just the fingers with green paint, then make a print at the bottom of the page. Repeat across the whole bottom edge of the paper. This creates the grass.
