This Handprint Held Ice Cream Cone Craft is a sweet treat that’s sure to beat the summer heat! Simply trace and cut out the little one’s handprint, print our Free Printable Ice Cream Cone Template, and decorate with the sprinkles of your choice!
What flavor of ice cream is your favorite? I tend to prefer chocolate, but you can’t go wrong with vanilla and sprinkles. For this craft, we made sprinkles 3 ways: small poms, sequins, and colorful markers. You could also make sprinkles with tissue paper and fingerprints. Or make toppings with swirls of paint.

To make our Handprint Held Ice Cream Cone Craft you will need our Ice Cream Cone Template, a brown marker, scissors, and a glue stick. You will also need white and brown paper, along with the color paper of your handprint as well as the base color paper. Then, gather supplies for the sprinkles. We used poms, colorful markers, and sequins.
