There’s nothing sweeter than handprint crafts. And this Easter, you’ll be pulling up the sweetest carrots in the patch with our Paper Plate Handprint Carrot Patch Craft!
This Handprint Carrot Patch Craft is so cute! I love how the paper plate forms a pocket that the handprint carrots just slide in and out of. It’s not only a sweet keepsake, but would make a great card, too, writing a message on the back of the handprint.
For our Handprint Carrot Patch Craft you will need a paper plate, orange cardstock, brown acrylic paint, an orange marker, green tissue paper, scissors, a stapler, and glue.
Handprint Carrot Patch Craft
- Paper plate
- Orange cardstock
- Orange marker
- Brown acrylic paint
- Green tissue paper
Begin by cutting a paper plate in half.
The cut in half doesn’t need to be precise at this point.
Line the pieces together. Staple around the outside edge, forming a pocket with the paper plate pieces.
Cut another inch or so off the top, to both make sure the pieces are the same size and so the handprints will fit better.
Paint the paper plate a dark brown color. We liked stamping the paint on with the brush, as it gave more of a dirt appearance. Let dry.
While the paint is drying, it’s time to trace a little one’s handprint.
Cut out the handprint.
Use the orange marker to draw carrot lines across the handprint.
Rip pieces of the green tissue paper. Glue the tissue paper to the tips of the fingers.
Insert the handprint into the paper plate pocket.
And your darling handprint carrots are growing from the garden dirt!
