Some monsters are simply too cute and we definitely have a sweet spot for monster-themed crafts, foods, & activities. Inspired by all the DIY monster gloves I recently came across, I thought it would be fun to make Monster Handprints with the kids. I wanted them to be cute, fun, and not-so-scary. If you would like to see our scary monster handprint design, head on over to Random Handprints to check out our guest post.

First, I mixed paint (blue for my son and purple for my daughter) with the same color glitter glue. I also added a Crayola Pearl It! mixing medium which gives it a shimmering, pearl-like effect. I’m a huge fan of how it looks and use it on all kinds of projects!
Both kids painted their hands and made prints on the construction paper. Set aside to dry.
Add on the fingernails with glitter glue pens or use paint.
Write, “Monster Hands” or aomething else cute like, “Mommy’s Little Monsters.”
Simple, yet totally adorable!
