Kid’s handprint artwork is simply the best type of gift for special occasions. Not only is it easy for kids (and adults) to make, but it becomes a special keepsake for years to come.

I remember feeling giddy after receiving my son’s first handprint flower art back in preschool. It was love at first sight!

Over the years, my son has come home with may other handprint flower art crafts that I’ve enjoyed and cherished. Every single one. In fact, I loved them so much that I ended up creating a Mother’s Day Handprint Art and a Valentine’s Day Handprint Art right here on the website!

Both those handprint art printables invovle making a handprint flower art and comes with a little poem. They are available for free in the MindyMakesLibrary.

materials needed to make father's day handprint art
  • GOLD PAINT – yellow works too
  • FOAM PAINT BRUSH or REGULAR PAINT BRUSHI used a piece of small foam
  • DISPOSABLE TABLECLOTH – or anything to protect your work surface

How to Make SIMPLE Hand print Craft

  1. First, print out Father’s Day Hand Print Art Printable (Link at bottom of post) on white card stock. Use regular printer paper if you are planning to laminate or frame the artwork at the end. (see optional touches below).
  2. Second, pour out non-toxic paint on a paper plate. I recommend using gold or yellow paint to match the color of the trophy stand.
  3. Next, use a foam brush to evenly paint child’s hand.
  4. Then, help the child make a hand print right above the trophy stand.
  5. Finally, allow hand print to dry and you are done!

Additionally, feel free to have your child sign his/her name at the bottom if they are school-aged. Otherwise, the handprint is a good enough signature!

Don’t forget to date your child’s art print to keep track of when it was made.

Handprint art in two different colors

Both yellow and gold are suitable paint colors to make the handprint. However, if your child prefers another color, by all means. This is their master piece after all!

Optional Touches For Art WORK

Once the paint is dry, you can also frame the printable to give it an extra special touch. If you have multiple children, frame all of their art prints and hang them side by side.

Another option if you don’t want to frame is to laminate the printable and gift as is. You can also punch two holes at the top of the art work and thread a ribbon through so dad can hang it up!
