These fun Christmas handprint crafts make great gifts and keepsakes to look at for years to come! Whether you choose a handprint tree or a handprint Rudolph, these fun crafts are a perfect way to use a child’s handprint in some way other than just making a mess!
I love using kids’ handprints to make keepsakes and crafts (and so does my Facebook page apparently!) because they’re hands are just so little right now and they won’t always be that way!
Plus, as a mom, I love to look back at the hand and footprint crafts my boys have made in the past and just ooh and ahh at how cute they are!
These Christmas handprint art ideas also make great gifts and great Christmas activities to do during that super long winter break, especially this year where we have an entire week before Christmas, a week after Christmas, and then another week after that!
It’s kind of crazy but if you plan out enough fun activities with the kids, you can make it a memorable time instead of a miserable one. I recommend doing some of these handprint crafts along with other things like these Christmas color by number pages and this Christmas scavenger hunt!
