Over 20 Spring Handprint & Footprint Craft Ideas for Kids
John, Bless the bed that I lie on. This week we are studying the number 4, so we are learning about over 20 Spring Handprint & Footprint Craft Ideas for Kids 4 gospels!
A winged lion for Matthew, a winged ox for Mark, an angel for Luke, and an eagle for John. We made all 4 crafts at the same time, but you could certainly do them one per day or let each of your kids make 1 or 2 of them. The lion is made from an upside down footprint. Use thumbprints to make the lion’s mane and use your pinkie finger to draw on his tail and dot the end of his tail. After he’s dry draw his face on with a black marker. Make your ox from 2 handprints.
Ages 9 – 12
The head of the ox is made by making a fist and printing the pinkie side of your hand. His wing is a handprint, and you can fingerpaint his horns on. When he’s dry, add some eyes and nostrils with a black marker. One upside down footprint, 2 handprints for wings, and a finger painted halo make this angel.
His head is a circle cut from a file folder and his face is drawn on with a black marker. Make 2 handprints for the body and wings of the eagle. To make his head, make a fist with your hand and print with the pinkie side of your hand. Use your pinkie and some yellow paint to dot on his beak and 2 feet.
