Handprints are the perfect shape to make a campfire craft! You could make a single handprint campfire, or use 2 or more hands to make a handprint bonfire.
How to make the Handprint Campfire (bonfire):
Paint the fingertips yellow, the bottom of the palm red, and the rest of the hand orange. I think it would look good with 3 different shades of orange too. This is a perfect example of what happens when you put too much paint on the hand see orange color. When you press down to make the handprint, it oozes out in between the fingers! Normally I would redo the handprint, however, for this project it actually looks okay- yay!
I painted 2 logs with a medium brown color and then used a darker brown to add depth by streaking in some lines and painting an end of each log the circle.
There cute campfire songs on the Preschool Education website. I wrote the lyrics to the Going Camping Song and placed it next to the fiery handprint. It’s sung to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot– cute!
