I love handprints! You can make just about anything out of a handprint or footprint, it makes a lovely memento and is an excellent sensory experience for babies and toddlers. At the moment, the kids absolutely love reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar over and over again, so I thought it would be fun to make our own ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ handprints!
All you need is blue, green and red paint, white paper and a black pen
I painted the palms of their hands green and their fingers blue and then repeatedly printed them in a row on the paper. We did three or four prints. When we had done this (and washed the paint off!), we painted a bright red head for the caterpillar and left the pictures to dry. Once they had dried we drew on antenna and eyes and mouth with black pen.
