Hand Shape Paper Frog
July 18th, 2010 by Craftylocks

Hop to it and make this cute little guy with your children and their hand prints.

hand-frogI am having to restrain myself from making all my posts hand print related. We started making just a few children’s hand print paper crafts and had such fun that we now have hand print crafts all over the lounge, the fridge, the bathroom and poked under beds. Not sure where this little guy will go yet, he is still in the homeless pile! So I felt at least I could give him his minute of fame by popping him here with all the other paper crafts for children.

The one picture says it all really. You need some green paper for the circle and the hand shapes, and some white paper for the eyes. Glue the eyes and hand shapes on as pictured and then add details with a marker pen. I like that these are all things that the children can do themselves.

I reckon that these would be great for a children’s group exercise as they would look great displayed on a log shape.

Hi Debbie,
That is a nice way to extend a walk in the park to a crafty time back at home. We have made paper lilies using our hands and chenille sticks – but not with found sticks. I like the sound of the several paper hands for a fancy flower – will have to try that.
Many thanks,

in the school holidays we made handprint flowers.
we collected sticks from the park and then drew around our hands. Wrapped the cut out paper hand around the stick and there you go a flower! You can do it once for a lilly type flower or several paper hands for a fancy flower.

Patterned paper/cardstock is cool with this to
