You can also make this same craft using paint. Paint a hand with pink or purple paint and then stamp onto white paper and cut it out. Then follow the same steps.

Supplies Needed To Make A Handprint Ice Cream

– Colored cardstock – we used purple, pink and light brown. You can also use cardboard instead of brown paper.

– Cotton balls

– Glue – Regular washable white glue is great for this project. Hot glue will work best for the pom pom to stay on.

– Pom poms – We used 1 inch large glittery pom poms

– Ice cream cone template – Get the free printable template for the ice cream cone at the bottom of the post!


To use recycled materials, you can use cardboard for the ice cream cone instead of cardstock.
