Animal Handprints craft with Bostik Bloggers.
I know I have only just posted May’s craft, Rainbow Raindrops, horribly late, however, I want to be on time this month and as we are having a very wet and cold summer, I thought you might be looking for crafty things to do with the kids.
I love these as they can be keepsakes as well.
June’s Bostik Bloggers theme is Jungle. Well, I know that you won’t find a Zebra or Giraffe in the Jungle but Bear loves doing handprints and really enjoyed this day and so we ran with it and adapted.
You will need:
Red, green, yellow, blue, purple, brown, black and white paint, lots of paper and baby wipes to clean hands in-between eat print.
A body shape, beak and eye for the parrot, a face and eyes for the monkey, 1 eye and a pen for the zebra and 2 eyes and a pen for the giraffe. (6 eyes altogether).
Buttons or jewels to stick to the parrot and Bostik Glu spots for this.
for the parrot, you need 1 red with white plan, 1 red with green fingers, 1 yellow with green fingers and 2 blue with purple fingers.
1 brown for the monkey, 1 white with black stripes for the zebra and 1 yellow forearm with only 4 fingers and brown splodges for the giraffe.
When they are all dry, assemble the animals using Bostik White Glu and accessorise with jewels and eyes, sticking these on with Bostik Glu Dots. I also used the Glu Dots to stick the finished animals to the wall as they can be moved around and are ok for painted walls.
These handprints were inspired by an original post by Michelle from Crafty Morning
