Or Follow These Step by Step Instructions
One of the ways to make these adorable handprint flowers is to trace your hand on red construction paper (or any other flowery color).
Alternatively you can trace your hand on white paper and color it.
Dipping your hand in non-toxic paint and pressing on white paper is another way to make handprint roses.
Cut out the hand outline. If working with younger kids, this is a task for adults. Kids with good scissor skills can cut by themselves.
Place the paper straw on the handprint (centered).
Secure with washy tape. You can also apply glue on the straw and stick it onto the handprint flower.
Cut a leaf shape out of green construction paper.
Apply glue on one end of the leaf.
Stick it on the paper straw (roll it around a little for the glue to really set).
All done! You have a wonderful handprint flower art ready.
