Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Children will learn about the primary colors as they make primary color handprints.

What You Need:

  • 9″ x 12″ Heavy weight (Sulphite) drawing paper
  • 12″ X 18″ construction paper or poster paper for the book page
  • crayons, markers, oil pastels, etc. in red, yellow and blue
  • Pencils or markers for tracing
  • Scissors and glue
  • My Primary Hands label
  • *Paper sizes are just guidelines.

What You Do:

Begin by talking about how there are three colors that make up all the other colors in the world. These three colors are red, yellow and blue. We also call these colors the Primary Colors.

Once the students are ready, hand out the paper and drawing supplies. Depending on their ages, children can trace their hands themselves, with partners, or a parent/teacher can trace their hands for them. The hands can be placed in any way on the paper (side by side, one over the other, etc.)…
