Family Handprints

Time

  • 15 to 20 minutes

Materials

  • Felt pen
  • Paper

Directions

  1. This activity is always a hit, but when you include family members, the learning is extended automatically. Help your child trace around one hand with the felt pen.
  2. Do the same for the other family members.
  3. Talk about the results.

Extensions

  • Help your child draw around a favorite toy, doll, or stuffed animal. Was it difficult or easy to do?
  • Help your child trace around a fruit or vegetable and talk about what it looks like. Cut the fruit or vegetable in half and talk about why that makes it easier.
  • Go outside together and find things to collect and trace around.
