Father’s Day Handprint Craft How To

1. Decide what color paper to use to make the Father’s Day handprint craft. If choosing white, it can be decorated with coloring tools (crayons, markers, etc) later.

2. Fold the paper hamburger style as if making a traditional card.

3. Place the preschooler’s hand on the folded piece of paper in such a way that their wrist is on the fold.

4. Trace your little one’s hand, keeping the wrist on the fold of the paper.

5.Cut out the paper but DO NOT CUT THE FOLD. Keeping the fold intact will ensure that the paper stays together and doesn’t end up being two handprints instead of a card.

6. Turn the card so that the thumb is facing up. (We wouldn’t want to make a thumbs down card 😉).

8. Open the card and invite the preschooler to decorate the inside of the card.
