Handprint Wreath

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: 25 minutes

Materials:

  • Paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Green and red construction paper
  • Pencil
  • White craft glue

This is a personalized holiday decoration. You may wish to do one with each member of your family.

  1. Cut the flat center out of the paper plate so that only the rim remains.
  2. Have your child spread her fingers and lay her hand flat on the green construction paper. Trace around your child's hand with the pencil to create a hand template.
  3. Cut out a dozen hands from the template.
  4. Cut out three red circles, about the size of a grape.
  5. Help your child arrange the hands around the plate ring. You want the hands to overlap and the fingers to reach outward.
  6. Help your child glue the hands to the plate. Let her glue on the red "berries" for a finishing touch.
