Today we made Santa Claus from our handprints! This was a super fun activity for the kids, they loved getting their hands messy! All you need are washable paints and a black sharpie. This is a great Christmas art project to do on a budget!
Start by painting your child's hand like mine above. First put white on the fingers and end of the thumb, skin color in the middle for his face, and red at the bottom for his Santa hat.
Press their hand on a black piece of construction paper. Turn the paper upside-down and you have the start of your Santa Claus!
After the paint dries, take a black sharpie and draw the face. Add a white mustache, a red nose and rosey red cheeks to finish him!
