Handprint art and craft projects for Fall

Make fall art and craft projects using your own handprints. You can use paint or cut out paper handprints or both, what ever you prefer. These fun hands on activities are a great way to play with color, texture and even talk about temperature. Use fall colors such as red, orange and gold to feature that autumn look. Handprints can represent a variety of fall features such as trees, leaves and even owls. Now I’m inspired to get creative and make my own fall handprint craft after looking at the great handprint projects I’ve found (some of these I made already and am sharing again).

I love fall colors so making these projects is always a favorite of mine. The best part about handprint crafts is that you don’t need a lot of materials and every project is unique.  Try making these projects using different materials to see what other looks you can come up with. If you have a fall handprint project you’d like to share for other preschoolers to get inspired to make, I’d love to hear about it!
