Fun Handprint Tree (Handprint Winter Crafts)


Handprint Tree Winter crafts are so beautiful and snow so fun to do… yay yay! There are many ways to make a snowman from handprints, footprints, and fingerprints – in how they are embellished or placed, such as candlesticks or ornaments. Snowflakes and winter trees are famous too.

Winter Handprint Tree

Winter is on its way and as a follow-up to our extremely popular fall version, we now have a winter hand tree to show you!

Well, probably a little more when they explored “Frozen” colors and swirls…

Swirls that ultimately converted into full-blown blizzards and eventually swallowed up their handprint trees!

Luckily, I was able to capture a few photos of my preschool tree before the weather changed.

Are you ready to go?

What you need

  • A sheet of blue stock card
  • Paints
  • Q-tips
  • Pencil

Instructions (step by step)

Draw around your little one’s hand and fill it with brown paint…

The brown color seems to come naturally to young kids, so let them play with the mixture of colors and encourage them to color in their own prints!

Set up a selection of colors and give each one a q-tip.

As you can see, our winter colors are white, blue, pink, and purple.

Begin dabbing the Q-tips around the handprint.

Use various colors and build the tree until it is beautiful and full.

And that’s it!

Frozen-Inspired Handprint Olaf

The Disney Frozen movie is HUGE at the moment! We like the film and particularly Olaf, so we wanted to make a craft Olaf. We decided to do it today with E’s handprint.

This Frozen-Inspired Handprint Olaf is such a fun project to do with your children and hang out to decorate your home for winter. The handprint art also makes it a cute keepsake!

What you need

  • Light blue construction paper
  • White paint (anything non-toxic and washable is good)
  • Paintbrush
  • Brown Paint
  • Black Paint
  • Orange Paint
  • Three small black pom poms
  • Glue

Instructions (step by step)

Begin printing Olaf by completely painting the palm of your child with white paint. I put it very thick to get as complete an imprint as possible.

Ask your child to put all his fingers together and press the palm of his hand close to the top of the page.

Push your child’s hand lightly on the paper to ensure the full print is left.

With more white paint, add some torso, a large base, and a few small feet.

Let the paint dry a little and then paint on an orange carrot nose.

Use brownish to paint twigs and arms.

Now use black for painting eye ovals and fill them with white.

Mix a little bit of black in the brown and paint on the eyebrows.

Now, let’s smile. Mix a bit of black with white to make gray and paint the mouth leaving white teeth space. Trace the mouth slightly with black and fill the teeth with more white.

Once the eye paint is dry, add the black pupils.

Stick on three black pom poms to make the buttons. Decorate the area around Olaf if you want!

My son LOVED doing that piece of art!
