We all know how much kids love to do handprint crafts! We find a way to turn a handprint into all sorts of things just to create a way to document how tiny she/he is now and was then. Toddlers really enjoy this handprint fish craft – so much so that they end up making multiple fish bowls! We think that using the dried beans in this craft is the key to capturing her interest because they are new and different. Enjoy!
What you’ll need:
Dried beans (Use the 15 bean variety soup pack)
Pen or marker
White pony beads
Fish Bowl Template
How to make your kids handprint fish bowl craft:
Print a fish bowl template and cut it out. Trace the bowl onto construction paper and cut it out.
Trace your child’s hand on construction paper and cut it out. Make sure that you cut a rounded bump out at the wrist part of the handprint to make a better looking face for your fish. Squeeze a good amount of glue along the bottom of the fish bowl. Glue the dried beans along the bottom to look like gravel in the fish bowl.
Glue the handprint onto the fish bowl. Glue a googly eye onto the handprint and use a pen or markers to draw on a smile. Cut a small diamond shape out of construction paper and glue it on as a fin.
