Hand prints are the starter for so many different critters and creatures. I have selected three of my favourite to show here. No instructions needed for these creations, just make your hand print and use the pictures as a guide.
This is a very speedy and very effective craft - they make a very special bunch of flowers for someone. You need paper and scissors, tape, and chenille sticks or pipe cleaners to make the stem and stamen.
We also made a red version of these.
This is creepily cute! I was so impressed with what excellent legs our finger shapes made on our spider. Keep it away from easily frightened folk!
Use lots of hand shapes and a paper plate to make this chirpy chick!
This is a very effective way of making a tree. I have used a similar technique for an Autumn Tree, but instead of finger prints we used scrunched tissue paper.
