This Kids Handprint Wreath Christmas Craft doesn’t require any special supplies, so it’s perfect for a last minute Christmas craft with the kids this week before Christmas.
Kids’ Handprints Make this Christmas Craft Special!
Christmas Handprint Wreaths can be made by one child or as part of a group project – whether that group be a classroom or a family. I used my six daycare kids’ hands to make our Handprint Wreath, but you could also add in your own and your partner’s hands if you’re making a Family Handprint Christmas Wreath.
And, as a bit of a bonus, being flat and made of paper, this Handprint Wreath Christmas Craft travels and stores really well, so it would be a wonderful little surprise to send to grandparents.
Kids Handprint Wreath Christmas Craft
- large paper plate (or cardboard cut into a large “O”)
- construction paper in various shades of green and in red
- pen or pencil
- string (optional)
- hole punch (optional)
Have your child place their hand on a piece of green construction paper and trace around it with a pencil. Repeat several more times – we used about 15 hands to make our wreath.
If you have a child who is skilled with scissors, have them help you cut out their hand tracings.
Cut a hole out of the middle of the paper plate to form the base for the wreath.
Arrange the paper hands on the paper plate “wreath” to make sure you have enough hand cut-outs. Play around with the arrangement a bit to get the results you want. Slide the paper plate out and then individually glue each hand cut-out to the plate.
Cut circles from red paper for the berries. Glue in sets of 3 onto the wreath.
Let dry before adding the string. Use a hole punch to cut one hole on each side of the plate for the string to tie through.
