What you need:
On Safari Handprint Picture Mat
White construction paper
Gray, white, black, brown, and yellow paint
Over a period of three days, have children make three safari handprint animals on white construction paper. For each animal, have child paint hand in the suggested color and make a print on the paper.
Show children how to turn the prints upside down and add markings to make each handprint into a safari animal. Discuss the kinds of patterns (spots, stripes, patterns) and features (eyes, manes, ears, hoofs) that need to be added to each handprint to make the specific animals.
Giraffe Handprint Craft: Yellow handprint with the thumb as the head. Have children add brown patches, two small brown horns, an eye, a yellow tail with a bushy brown end, and brown hooves.
Once handprints are dry, have children cut out each animal and glue it to his or her On Safari Picture Mat. Display completed handprint artworks on a bulletin board or classroom wall.
