Giraffe handprint Craft May 14, 2012

My daughter loves giraffes.  I saw this pinned on Pinterest and thought of Sophie right away.  She’s been asking me for weeks to do this project and I finally caved in.  It was a simple and fun project.  I highly recommend it for all you giraffe lovers out there!

 

Project Supplies

1.)  Paper

2.)  Yellow paint

3.)  Paint brush.

4.)  Brown marker

5.)  Googly eye.

 

Project Steps

1.)  Collect all the supplies.

2.)  Paint your child’s hand and forearm yellow.

3.)  Stamp the hand and forearm onto your paper.  You will need to paint on the head of the giraffe after you stamp.

4.)  Let the paint dry completely.

5.)  Draw in the giraffe spots, tail, horns, mane, notes, mouth and hooves with brown marker.

6.)  Attach googly eye.

 

And here’s my giraffe lover with her latest piece of artwork!
