  3. Make thumbprint eyes using white paint. Let dry.
  4. Dip your pointer finger in the black paint and make a fingerprint inside each of the white thumbprints for pupils. Let dry.
  5. Draw on a nose, mouth, eyebrows, and hair.
  6. Optional: cut around the handprint or use a black marker to outline around it.

Both projects can be made with kids of all ages.

  • Younger kids can make them with adult participation.

  • Ages three and up: a fun way to practice scissors skills and encourage imagination/foster creativity.
