Instructions For Hocus Pocus Handprints:
To make the first witch, paint the palm of the hand green. Paint the fingers – omitting the thumb, black. Place the fingers close together for the imprint.
Create the second witch in the same fashion by painting the palm of the hand green and the fingers orange, again leaving the thumb with no paint. Spread the fingers to create some big hair.
The last witch is slightly different. Paint the palm green, and ALL the fingers yellow. But this time, make the imprint with the fingers facing the bottom of the page.
Give all the witches eyes, a pointy witch nose and a mouth. Add some lashes to the yellow witch for sass.
Turn the black fingers into a witch hat by drawing a line across and creating a triangle around the fingers. Give this witch some short, curly, black hair.
Use the orange marker to make the orange fingers turn into frizzy witch hair.
Create the last witch’s wavy blonde hair by coloring some wavy lines with a yellow marker.
The handprint witches are ready to put a spell on you!
The simplicity of handprint crafts is always welcome for quick crafting sessions with kids, don’t you think so? And when the theme is based on the Hocus Pocus movie, simple crafting becomes magical and fun!
