Handprint Monkey on a Vine


Last month, we made a Handprint Monkey swinging on a vine. It is pretty easy to make!

  1. Start by making a brown handprint or whatever color you wish.
  2. Make a tan (any color) thumbprint at the tip of the thumb. This is where you will eventually draw in the nose and mouth.
  3. Make the monkey feet/hands by making a fingerprint at the tip of each finger.
  4. Make the ears by pressing a pinkie fingerprint on each side of the thumb just above where you made the tan thumbprint.
  5. Paint on a tail.
  6. Add any other decorations or leave it as is. We made a vine for the monkey to swing from!
  7. After it finishes drying, add in facial features and any other details.
Check out the Footprint Monkey we also made.

We link up to these weekly link parties!

I love all of these handprint/footprint art ideas. I especially love this monkey (monkey's are my son's favorite animal). I would love it if you would stop by and link this idea up to the new crafty link party I just started at http://linesacrossmyface.blogspot.com/2011/07/craft-link-party-1-cure-for-common.html
