Kids Craft:Hand Print Wreath

This sweet and simple craft is one of our favorite things to make around Christmas time. My little ones love tracing their hands and this craft takes about 20 minutes, perfect for short attention spans.

You will need:

  • red and green construction paper
  • a pencil
  • scissors
  • tape or glue
  • a large paper plate


Trace your child's hands over and over again. I ended needed 7 of each color. If your child is smaller, you might need more.
Cut out all of the hands.
Cut out the center of the paper plate. I really like to use a sturdy plate, it helps the wreath hold up so much better.
Tape or glue your hands around the wreath. overlapping a little on each hand. I alternated the colors, but you can go with whatever pattern you want.
Hang on the fridge or door for all to see! Have you ever made one of these with your kids?

I recently made a similar thanksgiving-inspired wreath with my two-year old and we had so much fun. I love his idea because it's perfect year round.

I think I have a hand wreath from all of my kids. They're a fun craft to do with our kids, and for me, they became keepsakes. I can't wait until I can do the same with my grandkids one day.

This is super cute! I once made a similar one using the handprints of my students. It was much bigger but turned out super cute!

This looks so cute, and yet festive! Seems like a nice twist on the thanksgiving turkey hands I've seen this week.

I can't wait to start making crafts like this with my daughter. I think I have to wait because she's only 4 months, but I want to try to do footprint ornaments this year!
