Halloween Handprint Craft Tips
Because some of the graphics will get covered by your toddler’s handprint, you have options for bringing forth things like the eyes and mouths.
In this set, we’ve given you guides where to place the eyes and mouth. Take a look at these options for how to make them pop!
- Use Googly Eyes where the eyes go for a 3-D Pop (I personally like this set of wiggle eyes where there are googly eyes of different sizes and colors)
- Print a second set of the Halloween handprint prints and allow your child to decorate the eyes and mouth. After the hand print dries, cut out the decorated eyes and mouth. Glue and lay on top of the dried handprint.
- If creating an item with different colors, do this in two steps. For example, paint the palm one color and place on the printable sheet. Once dry, place the finger and apply to the printed sheet. This allows you to add multiple colors without the smudge.
DIY Halloween Stickers
As an extra bonus, printable Halloween stickers are also included. These are great to use with handprint art or on their own. The kids will love using them to decorate their artwork, and you’ll love how they add a special touch.
To print your stickers, fill your printer with 8.5 x 11 sticker paper and print as normal. Trim the stickers, peel and add to your art.
To use the stickers, simply print them out on sticker paper and cut them out. Then let the kids get creative!
