Christmas Handprint Wreath

Big Sis has been BEGGING me to make holiday crafts.  I pulled out the old tried and true handprint wreath. Gotta love it.  First I cut a circle out of a cereal box for a sturdy backing.

When she was finished, I traced handprints on that paper, too.  Hint: fold the paper so you only have to cut one time.  I got four hands out of one sheet of paper.  Then we glued the handprints to the cardboard and stuck on some red circles (berries) and ribbon for good measure.  A four-year-old did the placement and gluing, so it isn’t quite Pinterest worthy but I like it.

You can vary your involvement depending on the age and abilities of your kiddo.  Toddlers could do the scribbing, and you do the rest.  Or an older kid would be able to the whole project by themselves.

Materials:

  • green, red, and white paper
  • markers and crayons
  • ribbon
  • cereal box or other cardboard
  • scissors
  • glue

Time investment: under 30 minutes

Difficulty: So easy your dog could do it.  If he could cut paper.
