Have you noticed how popular unicorns have become. Our daughter jumped on the bandwagon and loves unicorns. She got an FurReal Friends Unicorn from her grandparents a couple of years ago for Christmas and adores it!
When I started seeing all the unicorn crafts popping up on Pinterest, I knew she would be super excited to make a unicorn craft herself. I an effort to do more handprint crafts with her (before she gets too big), we made a handprint unicorn craft.
We just painted her room purple, but left a lot of pink decor in her room, so these unicorns will be perfect in a frame in her newly painted bedroom.
The color of paint she wanted was acrylic, so that’s we what used, but tempera paint works great too.
1. This first step is an optional step and will depend on the size of your child’s hand and how it fits on the paper. I laid our a piece of white cardstock horizontal and cut it in half. Her hand fit perfectly on the cut paper.
2. Paint your child’s hand the desired color of paint and carefully press down onto the paper. Allow the handprint to dry.
3. Once the handprint has dried, use the black marker to draw hooves on the unicorns, an eye, and mouth. Use a gold or bronze marker to do the unicorns horn.
4. Cut a few pieces of yarn and tie a knot at the top. Glue the knot to the unicorn’s rump.
5. To finish your handprint unicorn, cut a few pieces of yarn and glue individual strands behind the horn for the unicorns mane.
