Handprint Broomstick And Witch Instructions:
Paint the whole hand brown and make a sideways imprint towards the lower right side of the paper. This will be the end of the witch's broom.
Use a brown marker to make a thick line, creating the broom handle.
To create a witch, paint the palm of the hand green and the fingers black, leave the thumb clean.
Make the imprint a little above the broom to allow space for the witch's body.
How To Make The Thumbprint Book Characters:
Thumbprints are used to make the witch's friends. A pair of orange thumbs make the cat. Two brown make the dog. A single green thumb on the broom will make the frog. Finally, a green thumb in the air for the bird.
Give everyone some googly eyes and create a face. The cat will need some ears, arms and legs and a tail. The dog the same. A tip for the frog's legs: the leg on the right side is a number 2, do the opposite for the left leg. Add a wide grin and some arms to complete the frog. The bird will need a beak, a wing and some small feet.
To finish off the body of the witch; create a triangle with the top red and the bottom purple. Add some stick legs and arms to complete the body. Some simple orange hair tied up in the classic yellow bow will finish the look. Don't forget about her beloved star wand!
There's plenty of room on this broom for some great hand and fingerprints!
