|handprint basketball craft by my 4 yr old|
Since March Madness has been going on, I thought it would be an excellent time to do a basketball-themed craft. Inspired by the handprint football craft we did for the Superbowl, I had the kiddos do the same thing but with a basketball.
We started by painting each hand and pressing them on the paper as shown in the photos. I didn't have any purple paint, so I put a 1 blob of red paint on my daughter's hand and 1 blob of blue paint on the other hand. I asked my 4 year old what color it was going to make and he proudly said purple. I rubbed her hands together and she watched her little hands change colors.
To make the handprint basketball, I just painted the palm area orange and had them make a palm print in the middle of their handprints. I drew the lines in after it finished drying.
