Kids Craft: Canvas Handprint

Remember the days when your child was this little? Treasure that moment in time with a canvas handprint!

Crafted by Christy.


  • 6" x 6" Canvas 
  • Paint
  • Embellishments (Buttons, Flowers, Stickers, Glitter, etc.)
  • Ribbon
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Stapler

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.
  1. Have your child paint the canvas with the color of their choice with a paintbrush. Painting the sides of the canvas is optional.
  2. Apply paint to the child's hand using a paintbrush in the color of their choice.
  3. Assist your child in pressing their hand firmly onto the canvas to create the handprint. You can touch up the handprint on the canvas with the paintbrush if some areas did not properly transfer.
  4. Apply adhesive to the embellishments your child wishes to use.
  5. When finished, set the canvas aside to let dry.
  6. Once dried, use a stapler to staple ribbon onto the back of the canvas.
  7. Proudly display in an area of your home.
Here are a couple of canvas handprints that were made in our Mommy and Me Class.
