There are lots of animal pictures which can be very effectively achieved using handprints: Crab – Make twoprints with hands pointing in opposite directions and heels of palms slightly overlapping (thumbs pointingdown). Use a finger to print two “stalks” for eyes and the pad of thumb to print claws. Draw a smile and eyeswith a black felt tip.Peacock – For a huge group peacock, get each child to make a few prints of their hand with paint, and then cutthem out once dry. Create a peacock with them by sticking them onto another large piece of paper in a bigfan shape. Draw and cut out a body and legs and stick them onto the fan.

Ostrich – Use 2 or 3 cut out hand prints to make the feathery body of an ostrich then draw on a long neck,head and legs. Other animals that can be used are turtles, crabs, camels, elephants and butterflies. Handprints also make great wings for insects and leaves for trees. They also make great fairy or angel wings. A footprint makes a great animal face too.
