Snowflake Handprints

Handprint crafts are always some of the cutest crafts to make with your kids. They’re fun to look back at when they’re older and see those tiny little hands! This snowflake handprint is a simple idea for a winter craft to make with the kids, and will work well with younger toddlers too

You’ll only need a few materials for this simple handprint craft:

  • Silver or White Craft Paint
  • Paint Brush or Sponge
  • Blue Construction Paper
  • Paper Plate or tray
  • A Helping Hand! 😉


Squirt some paint onto the paper plate.

You can add the paint to the hand by brushing it on or press the hand right into the paint.

To create the snowflake :
Press the hand down firmly with the palm in the middle of the paper and fingertips pointing straight up.
Then continue to make handprints around in a “star” pattern. There should be about six handprints, maybe seven.

Allow to dry, decorate by adding some sliver glitter glue or painted snowflakes. You could also sprinkle over loose glitter.

  1. This is such a super cute activity for kids to do! I’m always looking for ideas to stimulate my kids creativity and keep them busy. We are heading into another school holiday this week and I’m definitely going to be getting my kids into this activity. It is so simple but the results look amazing.
