Families always treasure handprint decorations! This easy relief print makes a wonderful, personalized gift for any holiday.
Here's a way to make a cherished handprint present for parents or grandparents. You'll use an easy art technique called relief printing.
Measure a square or any shape you choose on construction paper. Mark the edges with Crayola® Colored Pencils. Cut out your banner with Crayola Scissors.
Cover the art area with recycled newspaper. Paint the background of your plaque with gold Crayola Premier Tempera and paintbrushes. Air dry.
On a foam tray, use a colored pencil to press in a holiday symbol such as a Christmas tree, dreidel, candle, or flower. Remember, the design will print in reverse. Cut out the printing block.
What color will stand out on the gold background? Brush Crayola Washable Paint on the printing block. Stamp a pattern on the gold paper. Add paint to the stamp as needed. Air dry.
Students use their hand as a stamp, paint it with a contrasting color of Crayola Washable Finger Paint. Press your palm on your banner. Print both hands if desired. Students wash their hands with soap and water. Air dry the banner on a flat surface.
Punch two holes at the top of the banner. Draw ribbon or yarn through the holes and tie to form a hanger.
Punch two more holes on the bottom. Run more ribbon through these holes and tie into a bow. Be sure to write the date on the back of the banner.
