Hand Print Card - Preschool Fathers Day Crafts
Make a home-made card or a wall hanging with your child's hand print on it, and print this poem on it:
My Hand print
Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But everyday I'm growing big
And soon I'll be very tall
Then all my little hand prints
Will be hard to recall
So here's a special hand print
Just so that you can say
This is how my fingers looked
When I placed them here today.
- Pictures clipped from magazines
- White craft glue
- Have the children chose a rock from the garden.
- Pick a picture that fits the rock.
- Paint picture down with watered-down glue onto the rock.
Father's Day Coffee Mug - Preschool Fathers Day Crafts
- White or clear coffee mug
- Puff paints
- Buy or find a mug and puff paints.
- Put down newspaper at your work spot.
- Hold the mug by the handle, and write whatever you want on the mug.
- Write something like: #1 Dad, or a label with a name of a sport your dad likes ex: Baseball
Dough Hand print
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1 cup water
- Food coloring
- Gold marker
- Wax paper
- Add food coloring to the water.
- Mix all ingredients well, kneading until smooth.
- Dough should be pretty stiff, not soft or runny or it will fill with air bubbles when baking.
- Form dough into a ball, of about what you can enclose in your two hands, and form into a round smooth ball.
- Using a rolling pin with the dough on wax paper, roll out into as round of a circle as you can. Dough will be about 1/2 inch thick.
- Press your child's hand with fingers splayed into the dough.
- Depending on child's age, you will have to help and individually press their fingers.
- Make sure to press deep enough without going completely to the bottom. (When it bakes it tends to raise the hand print up.)
- Use a chop stick or pencil, etc. to make two holes in the top about 1/2 inch apart. This will be used to string the ribbon through.
- Bake at 200 degrees for about 2-3 hours. Dough should be fairly hard but watch to see that it doesn't burn.
- When they are done and cooled, use a gold marker pen and write the child's name and date (year)
