If there is one sport I think of when summer rolls around, it’s baseball! Justin is a huge baseball fan and it’s starting to rub off on Weston. So it only made sense to make a Handprint Baseball Craft to celebrate their favorite sport of the season!
Handprint Baseball Craft for Kids
Handprint crafts are some of my favorites because of the memory factor. I love knowing I’ll be able to look back when my kids are older and see how small their hands are! Plus they love to get messy with paint, so it’s a win for both of us!
What You Need:
- Construction paper (any color for your background)
- Brown paint
- White paint
- Paper plates (to put the paint on for easy clean up)
- Wet wipes or paper towels (to clean messy hands)
What You Do:
- Have your child make a fist with one hand and dip the side of it in the white paint. Press on the construction paper to make the ball. (You can fill it in if their fist doesn’t make a great circle.)
- Clean the hand and then have them place their palm flat in the brown paint.
- Press on to the paper near the white ball shape with fingers spread.
- Clean off the messy hands then use your finger in the brown paint to add stitches to the ball and add the connecting lines on the handprint to make it look like a baseball glove!
You could also get out red paint to make the stitches on the ball if you want to make it more realistic. But I think it turned out pretty cute! Weston insisted on drawing the path that the baseball was on to the mitt. That’s a memory I won’t forget either!
Tell me about your family’s favorite summer sport!
