Handprint Art

Handprint art and craft is very popular. It is easy, it looks great and seems like the teacher is very creative!

Displays in classrooms are great, many people are creating calendars with handprints in different shapes for each month, and a clever blog has come up with an idea for each letter:

Other reasons to do the handprint (and sometimes footprint art) are:
*It stimulates the senses.

*It is a tactile experience.

*Kids develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

*It forms a more intimate bond between the artist and his/her work.

*It allows for therapeutic, artistic self-expression.

*Kids can experiment with colours and textures

*And it allows for spacial awareness.
