Draw an outline of a hand on some coloured card. Carefully cut this out, ready to decorate (some children may need a little assistance with this).
Use Blu Tack to secure the handprint to a piece of unfolded newspaper, or any surface that can get messy!
Top tip: make sure that the handprint has a good contrast against the surface so that your child can easily see or feel it.
Decorate your Holi Hand. You can make creative patterns and details using scented or brightly coloured markers, glitter glue or puffy paint.
Think of the different ways to decorate your Holi Hand.
Perhaps you could blow paint using a straw, flick paint with a paint brush, spatula or with your hands or even try fingerpainting.
For very young children, or those who don’t like the sensation of touching paint, pop your Holi Hand into a zip lock bag with a few splodges of paint. Encourage your child to squeeze or roll the bag around to decorate their Holi Hand!
