MY HANDPRINT     


Illustration by Geoff Slater

Level: ECE, Primary
Grades: PreK- Gr. 2 | Age: 2-8 yrs | Written by: Julia Wallace
[Julia is a student from the Center for Arts and Technology (Pickering Campus) in Phoenixville, PA]
Summary:

Little ones can create a memorable handprint with paint.

What You Need:
What You Do:
  1. Each child paints their hand (you may need to offer assistance to younger children).
  2. Children then place their hands on the paper to create a handprint.
  3. Allow the paint to dry.
  4. If they are able to, allow the child to write his/her name. If not help them with this step.
  5. Paste the poem next to their hand print:
  6. This is my hand so tiny and small
    For you to place upon the wall
    So you can watch as years go by
    How we have grown, my hand and I

Another poem:

Sometimes I might upset you
Just because I'm small
By leaving fingerprints of mine
On a table, chair or wall.
But everyday I grow a bit
And I'll be big one day
When all my tiny fingerprints
Have long been cleaned away
So keep these prints of my two hands
To help you to recall
Just how big my fingers were
That time when I was small.
