How To Make A Handprint Unicorn
Step 1. Paint & Stamp
To make a pink unicorn, paint your child’s hand pink! Make sure to get enough paint on their hand that it stamps well onto the paper, and work quickly so their hand doesn’t dry before stamping it.
To stamp the paper, have your child keep their fingers together and their thumb up. The thumb will turn into the unicorn’s ear, and the finger tips will be the unicorns nose.
Step 2. Draw The Unicorn’s Face & Horn
Use the permanent marker to add a unicorn horn to the top of the head. I also added a pretty closed eye with eyelashes and a little smile.
Step 3. Paint The Unicorn’s Mane
Use the blue paint to paint some long curling unicorn hair around the ear on the back of the hand.
After the unicorn is painted, your child can paint all around the paper to add a background or details they like.
That’s it, the unicorn handprint craft is complete!
This activity would work great for a princess or unicorn themed party, and you can use other paint colors to customize your unicorns. You could also try using sparkly paint for an extra magical touch!
