23 creative art projects for kids using hands

This round up is part of our Summer Learning Series for our hands week activities. Click here to find out all of the great themes for each month and week.

There are so many fabulous and creative ways to use your hands for art projects. Whether you are using your actual hand print in the art project or using your hands to paint, stamp or trace, the point is just to let your kids show their creative side and make something that they are happy with.

I know the thought of art project messes can be enough to steer clear, but doing art is a great way to build your child’s confidence, creativity and imagination in a super fun way. Art projects can also double as sensory activities and fine motor development, which is important for learning to write later. They can also learn about shapes, colors, textures, and how to communicate their feelings.

So if that doesn’t convince you think of the time you can spend bonding with your child while making creative projects that you will cherish for years to come.

Have fun!
