Holiday Handprint Wreath Activity
- 4 Sheets of Green Construction Paper.
- Paper Plate.
- School Glue.
- Hot Glue Gun and glue.
Begin by tracing handprints onto green construction paper. I folded the construction paper into quarters and traced my niece’s hand on to the folded paper. Cut out the hands and set aside. This wreath had 16 hands on it, you may need more for smaller hands.
Next, cut out the middle of the plate, where the food goes, leaving just the rim of the paper plate.
Add glue around the edge of the paper plate. You could use a paint brush to spread the glue out evenly, or you could use a glue stick.
Allow the glue to dry, and carefully fold the fingers on the hands out to flatten the wreath some. If the paper plate is flat, this may not be necessary.
Once the glue has dried, tie a bow with the ribbon, and carefully hot glue it to the bottom of the holiday wreath. I hot glued the bow instead of tying it. To do this, fold the ribbon into thirds. Then, glue the middle of each end to the middle of the center section of the ribbon. Next, cut a small piece of ribbon, and hot glue it in the middle of the “bow” to cover the joined sections. Trim the ribbon tails to make them even, and hot glue it to the wreath.
That’s it! You’re all done! I hope you loved making your Paper Plate Holiday Wreath Activity.
