How do learners do this winter handprint activity?

– Print out the pages you’d like learners to do for this activity. Choose either the guided or blank version depending on how open-ended you’d like this activity to be or depending on your learners.

– Provide learners with paint, you can get learners to paint their own hands with paint. Alternatively, provide learners with trays of 1 to 2 colors filled with a thin layer of paint, they will dip their palms into the paint.

– Learners will then place their palms onto the page to stamp their handprint and create their winter handprint project.

– They can trace the word on the page if required.

– Leave the pages up to dry completely before giving it back to your learners.

This is a fun activity, but can get rather messy, so make sure your learners are aware of what they are doing so it does not get out of control. Keeping only a couple of trays of paint for learners to dip their palms into would definitely help with reducing the mess.

I hope your learners love and have fun with this Winter Handprints Art Activity as much as my learners loved it!
