How to a Handprint Strawberry Craft

  1. Use a paint brush to paint your little one’s hand, use it to make prints on the Kraft paper. I usually let my little ones make a few prints. It helps to get the paint off their hands and toddlers love painting with their hands so just making one print will never be enough.
  2. Use a paint brush to make the green tops of the strawberry using green paint.
  3. Let the handprints dry.
  4. Once dry use a sharpie or black marker to make the small strawberry seeds.
  5. Add googley eyes using glue.
  6. Cut it out and glue it to a piece of white card stock.
  7. Write out a cute message such as “Happy Mother’s Day, I love you berry much!”

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 2 years and up. My kids are 4, 4, and 7 year old.

Mess Level

This is a painting activity so it can be messy. Mess level is at the high. Protect your surface with Kraft paper.Also protect your child’s clothing. You will need to use acrylic paint to paint the mason jar (that is not optional) and acrylic paints aren’t usually washable or if they are they don’t completely come out of clothing.
