We love to do handprint crafts – and this handprint alphabet doubles as a great preschool activity to learn the alphabet. Kids will love creating each letter with their own handprint. You can even put all of the handprints together and make a special book of the alphabet as a keepsake or learning binder.

To make the handprints, first paint the hand and make the handprint. Allow the handprint to dry. Then paint on any additional details like the stem and leaf for the apple, the tail for the unicorn, faces, etc.

Finally, trace around the handprint with a black sharpie.
