After the kids got their faces painted at a festival a few weeks ago, they kept begging to have it done again. I got some face paint at the craft store to give them a special painting surprise. But I wanted to do something just a little more unique than typical face painting. Instead we painted hands!
It was really fun and so much simpler than it looks. Here’s how I did it…
Painted Hand Puppets in 4 Easy Steps
1. Paint a base color and let it dry.
2. Add some patterns with another color and let it dry.
3. Add the eyes, lips, and teeth or fangs and let it dry.
4. Use a fine brush to add black outlines and details.
As you can see, Sawyer wanted a snake. Priscilla wanted a “rainbow monster princess,” so that was just a little more complicated. The kids had a blast opening and closing their fingers to make their hand puppets talk and bite. We’ll definitely be doing this again.
