Handprint crafts are so much fun and today we’re making ocean handprint animals: a shark and a crab.
All you have to do is to print the shark or crab page and have you kid add their handprint. It will be both hands for the crab for its claws and one handprint for the shark’s fin.
It is a fun and simple summer handprint project to try at home or with preschoolers in the classroom.
The above picture with the crabs and sharks was sent to me by one of our followers. She tried the handprint project with her four kids. I love how they all turned out and the color variety used for the crab.

Use a paint sponge to cover the kid’s hands with red paint. Do one hand at a time. Press each hand onto the printable to make the handprints look like the crab’s claws.
