St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Rainbow Canvas
Gold Glitter Foam Sheet
White Foam Sheet
Prepare a paper plate with a rainbow of paint colors, including black.
Paint your child’s fingers red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple etc.
Paint the palm of your child’s hand with black paint.
The paint should be put on thick.
Firmly press your child’s hand on the corner of the canvas. Lift up in one quick motion. Be careful not to smear their hand on the canvas. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Let your child paint a rainbow coming off of the fingertips. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Cut small circles from gold glitter foam and glue onto the black “pot of gold.”
Cut a cloud shape from white foam and glue on top of the end of the rainbow. Trim off excess foam.
If you are creating the canvas with the grass, you will first dip your child’s finger in green paint and have them press it along the bottom of the canvas to create grass blades. Follow the rest of the steps above except place your child’s hand in the middle of the canvas slightly on top of the grass.
