When it comes to creative and fun for kids, this adorable Alphabet Handprint Craft is the best. This printable alphabet activity is great for early learners as well as preschool-aged children who love messy play! Have fun learning all the letters A to Z with these adorable Alphabet Handprint Crafts for Toddlers.
When the kids are little, it’s fun to find creative activities and crafts to do with them. And let’s be honest, the kids will be super pumped to dip their little hands in paint and be a part of creating the alphabet sitting right next to you.
The really fun part about this handprint activity is that every page focuses on a letter of the alphabet. (and has a super cute and fun saying to go along with it!)
How do you keep the paint from staining kids hands?
Some paint will stain hands and sometimes, there isn’t anything that you can do about it. Instead of acrylic paint, the BEST way to keep the paint from staining their hands is to use a washable paint (like this low-cost set.)
You can also add a tad bit of lotion on their hands and have them rub it in before dipping their hands in the paint. This is a great way to add an extra barrier to their skin and can help avoid having stained hands for weeks!
Why are handprint crafts important?
I get it – I’m a parent and I know that thoughts that surround messy play. But, in my mind, messy play is great for creative play, imaginative play, and fine motor skills as well. In addition to working on fine motor skills and creativity, hand and fingerprint art leaves a piece of history behind. It captures tiny hands on a certain date and year so you can look back and ask yourself through nostalgia “how did they grow so fast?!”
Since each printable letter of the alphabet has a space for the kids to dip their hands in paint and be a part of the process, this will also keep them engaged during the entire alphabet activity. That is HUGE for little kids!

By incorporating artwork into alphabet letters you are promoting early literacy bringing auditory learning to kinetic learning. The child had heard the letter, visualized the letter and how they are working with their hands to further imprint (pun intended) the letter into their memory bank.
These handprint artwork activities promote…
- aids in early reading
- develops vocabulary
- helps with letter recognition
- connects how printed text is associated with the spoken language
- promotes sound recognition (when verbal instruction is incorporated)
- supports the development of cognitive, social-emotional and multisensory skills
All you have to do is print to get started!
