How To Use this Free Father’s Day Printable
If you are in a classroom setting, you could survey the kids ahead of time to know how many to print out of each printable.
There are 10 free printable options available. You or your child can choose which one they want to use and print out any options they are interested in creating. Another option would be to print out all 10 and make a Father’s Day handprint book out of them.
Either pull up the handprint guide on your computer, phone, or laptop and view it from there or print out the example handprints.
Next, paint your child’s hand accordingly. The handprint guide is meant as inspiration, but you or your child can choose whatever colors are desired onto the child’s hand.
Next, press the hand in place. Encourage them to press their hand into the paper and then stay still. Without much movement, I have found the most success if you press on top of the hand, rocking the fingers slightly for a more thorough print.
Allow handprint to dry before gifting to Dad.
