Father’s Day Handprint Tree


Father’s Day gifts don’t have to be complicated. Looking for ideas on Pinterest this past week made me almost give up the idea of making a Father’s Day gift with my kids. Let’s face it – not everyone has the talent to make three dimensional father’s day tie cards or printables. I took the kids over to the Michael’s to see what we could figure out together when we saw a display for a Father’s Day Handprint Tree. Brilliant!


The activity was perfect for my boys who won’t stay at the art table for more than 30 seconds, and the gift could actually be made by them! (well with a little supervision) The entire project took about a whole five minutes, so there is plenty of time to still make this for dad before Sunday.


Supplies needed:

1 boxed canvas (big enough for your kiddos hands)
Green, brown and black paint
Paint brushes



There is really isn’t any. Just be creative! Let’s your kids paint their own hands (recommended to do outside).


Then have the kiddos use their hands for the branches, and then free hand paint a trunk.


I probably would have left out the black outline, but the it was my daughters idea…and so I love it too!
