If you are looking for fun, hands on arts and crafts to do with your little one you’ve come to the right place.
Each week we share a new preschool alphabet craft. This week our hand print art includes creating an I for ice cream.
How many things can you think of that start with the letter I? Ice cream, iguana, ice, insect, iron and more!
Don’t forget that we have many preschool alphabet curriculum ideas here on the site. At the end of this post I have included links to our letter of the week craft, a letter I do a dot printable, a handwriting practice worksheet that is all about the letter I, a book list for the library, and a snack idea!
Ready to see the fun craft?
Hi! I’m Amanda from Fun Handprint Art and I am excited to be guest posting over here for another alphabet craft! This week’s hand print art is I is for Ice Cream. Yum! If you have been following along with this series, then you may already know about my daughter’s obsession with the color pink. So today I bring you another, you guessed it – pink craft!
It is simple to make!
- construction paper
- ice cream cone template
- red pom pom
- optional embellishment ideas: glitter, sequins, buttons
Instructions for making the Hand Print Art: I is for Ice Cream craft:
- Print the ice cream cone template or cut one from construction paper.
- Color it, then cut around just the cone. Glue on to the construction paper.
- Make a handprint with the fingers pointed down on top of the cone. The fingers will overlap the cone.
- You can stop there or make another 1 (or more!) handprint on top of the first one. We used a different color for our second scoop of ice cream.
- Embellish with items such as glitter, buttons, sequins, or even real sprinkles! Or you may wish to leave it as is.
- Glue a red pom pom on top – the cherry!
- Write ‘I is for Ice Cream.’
Variations: There are so many different ways to make ice cream hand print art. Instead of making two ice cream scoops, you could make one or even five. How fun would it be to make 1 scoop for every color of the rainbow?! You could skip painting the fingers and instead make palm print scoops of ice cream. Or make 2 prints on top of the cone with another print on top of them for an extra-large ice cream cone. Another idea is to make the hand prints with the fingers pointed up like in this ice cream craft.
See you next week for a fun ocean animal hand print craft to go along with the Letter J!
