Making Hand Print Flowers

Very decorative and effective to be used as a summer display.

You will need:

  • Coloured paper
  • Paint in a variety of colours
  • Scissors
  • Straws
  • Thick green paper
  • Selotape


Start by either drawing around the children’s hands on coloured paper or paint their hands and making hand prints. Then cut out the hand prints, older children may be able to cut them out themselves. Take a straw and wrap the wrist side of the hand print around the top bend of a straw, with the painted side of the hand print facing in towards the straw . Place several hands around the straw, bending the fingers outward slightly, to look like a small flower either opening or fully in bloom. Using thick green paper cut out a leaf shape, write the child’s name on it and stick this to the bottom of the straw.
