How to Make Grinch Handprint Cards
You can create each card as a set or make your favorite one! Follow our easy step-by-step directions for each card.
First, start by tracing the handprint for each card on white cardstock.
Cindy Lou: Trace the handprint so the pinky is along the folded part.
Max: Trace the handprint so that the thumb is on the folded part. Note: we did the pinky which is ok too but you will need to flip the card around so it opens the traditional way.
Grinch: Trace the handprint so that the thumb is on the folded part.
Cut out each card:
Then paint each card and let the paint dry:
Cindy Lou: Paint the face the color of your choice and paint the fingers yellow.
Max: Paint the middle a light brown and the thumb and pinky a dark brown.
Grinch: Paint the bottom part of the handprint a lime green and the fingers red.
Now follow the steps for each handprint card:
Cindy Lou Handprint Card
Glue 2 ribbon bows to the “hair” on the index and ring finger. Glue a Christmas bell on top.
Glue 2 small googly eyes on.
Using a black sharpie, draw on the eyelashes, nose and mouth.
Max Handprint Card
Glue 2 large googly eyes and a black pom pom for the nose.
Draw an antler shape on cream or light brown cardstock and cut out. You can also paint white cardstock instead.
Glue the antler paper shape to the top of the handprint.
Glue a ribbon bow on top. Then glue a Christmas bell on top of the bow.
Grinch Handprint Card
Glue cotton balls along the brim of the hat area and glue a white pom pom on the thumb.
Glue on a ribbon bow to the bottom of the handprint and glue a Christmas bell on top.
Glue on 2 googly eyes.
Draw on the eyebrows, wrinkles, nose and mouth with a black sharpie.
We love how cute these handprint cards are! The Grinch may be our favorite.
As an alternative to the Grinch face you could also paint a more realistic face with the eyes being yellow.
