Colorful Handprint Holi Card

The Indian festival of colors, Holi, is just around the corner. This year, Holi, will be on 9th March, 2020.

On this day, people of all ages come together to put beautiful colors on each other using natural or artificial powders and paints. Kids fill up water balloons and pichkari (water syringes) to splash their friends and sometimes even strangers!

Adults usually play with colors in the morning and then spend the afternoon and evening with friends and family over lunch and oral, board or card games. It is a time of fun and enjoyment for everyone. Anyone who has played Holi will usually have fond memories of it lasting years.

To commemorate this year's Holi festival, we decided to make a super easy yet colorful handprint Holi card.

This is a simple Holi craft that teachers and parents can quickly make with their students or children making for a fun sensory and learning activity.

Once complete, the craft can act as a lovely Holi greeting card that can be gifted to other students or family members to celebrate the colors of Holi with them.


We had a gala time making this handprint craft and playing with our creation later on. Hope you will enjoy making this too. Here's to a joyful Holi to everyone!

HOW TO MAKE HOLI GREETING CARD?


MATERIALS
Cardstock Paper
Washable Paints
Googly Eyes
Glue
Black Marker
Scissor

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Fold a cardstock paper (A4 or letter size) into half.

2. Paint your child's hand or let the child have fun painting his hand using different colors. Go as colorful as possible after all it's a Holi card :)


3. Gently press the child's hand on the folded cardstock paper and pull it up carefully. You can see in the picture that my daughter was in a hurry to pull her hand the second time we tried to print. So, it's okay if the print doesn't come out perfect. I think it still looks pretty. Let the paint dry.


4. Lightly mark the border using a pencil around the handprint.


5. Cut out the handprint keeping the top part intact.


6. Glue googly eyes and make a smiley using a black marker.


7. Let the child personalize the card with a Holi greeting for friends and family.
