This year I wanted to try something a little different for our 4th of July craft. So, my daughters and I created fireworks crafts by paintings with handprints!
Make Your Own 4th of July Preschool Handprint Craft
Celebrate the 4th of July with this simple handprint fireworks painting craft with just a few supplies.
Supplies Needed for the 4th of July Handprint Firework Craft
- red, white, and blue paint
- paintbrush or foam brushes
- table cover
- crayon (optional)
How to Make Your 4th of July Handprint Preschool Firework Craft
Start off by gather the supplies.
To avoid a big clean up cover your table with an old plastic table cloth or drop cloth.
Pour a small amount of red, white, and blue paint onto a paper plate.
Set black papers in front of each kid and lay brushes down for each color.
Now you are all set to start your own 4th of July preschool firework craft.
Paint a hand with one of the colors.
Now press the painted hand firmly onto the paper.
We chose black paper to look like the night sky for our firework craft, but you could use any colored paper.
Clean the paint off of the hand. Wet wipes would probably work, but we chose to wash our hands at the sink.
Repeat the process with the two other paint colors turning the page each time so the fingers don’t overlap too much.
We overlapped the paint on the palm, but not on the fingers.
If your preschool kid wants to keep going with handprints on their 4th of July craft, go for it! Just have them try to aim their palm always for the middle.
My daughters decided their firework crafts were missing something, so they added lines with a white crayon.
Of course, they had to be a little different. Straight lines for one and curly lines for the other.
Boom! That’s all it takes to make a 4th of July preschool craft with handprint painting.
Great for displaying on our wall this 4th of July!
