Grandparents Day Hand and Finger Paint Cards


  • Finger Paint
  • Construction Paper

1. Decide on your design. If you check out Pinterest, you can find a gazillion hand print art designs! We chose a heart shape design.
2. Paint your child’s hand and create the shape you desire. I included 1 hand from each boy to create our heart.
3. Allow your child to finger paint a design. I had Zack finger paint one side of the heart shape and Will did the other half.
4. Add your personal message inside the card.

Educational Activities

This craft lends itself to Language Arts education. Have your child decide on the message and if they are able, to write the message and sign their names to the card. If they aren’t writing yet, they can always “draw” their name or draw an image inside the card to personalize it. You can also have your child tell you what they want the card to say and you can write it for them.
