Handprint Thankful Trees

Posted by & filed under Crafts, Holidays, Thanksgiving.




Handprint Thankful Trees are a wonderful way to Celebrate all that your child is thankful for.  And a great way to preserve the memory of their little hands.

You will need:

  • White Paper (thicker paper or cardstock is better)
  • Brown Paint
  • Red, Yellow, Orange Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick

Start by painting the inside of the child’s arm and palm with brown paint. Press onto the white paper to form the tree trunk and branches. Let dry.

Cut leaf shapes out of the consturction paper. If child is old enough have them write things they are thankful for on the leaves. I also did this project with my 1 and 3 year olds. The 3 year old dictated to me and I wrote for him and the 1 year old’s tree has blank leaves.

Have child glue their leaves onto the tree branches.

Frame and display for the Thankful Season!
