Handprint and footprint crafts make delightful keepsakes and memories for both you and your little ones. Save the precious moments of their youth with a few creative angel-themed art projects that are simple enough to make at home, school or at church.
Mommy's Little Angel Ornament
If you think your child is an angel, consider this craft heaven-sent. You'll need a piece of foam board, construction paper and a photo of your child. Trace your child's hands on construction paper and cut the handprints out. The handprints will be the angel's wings. Cut out an angel body from foam board. Cut out your child's head from a photograph or a photocopy to use as the angel's face. Glue the wings and face to the angel body.
Frame a footprint, turning it into an angelic work of art. Have your child dip his foot in enamel paint and make a footprint on a piece of canvas or foam board. The footprint becomes the angel body. The sole of the foot should be the head. Use a black marker to draw in angel wings, a face and a halo.
Angel Tree Topper
Top your Christmas tree with a simple angel topper. You'll need a cone-shaped hat (birthday party hat), foil, white doilies and a pipe cleaner. Trace your child's hands on the foil to create wings. Wrap white doilies around the party hat to make the robe. Draw the angel's face near the tip of the party hat. Wrap a piece of pipe cleaner around the tip to make the halo. Attach the foil wings to the back of the robe.
Handprint and Footprint Angel Toy
Let your angel move its wings with this quick craft. Trace both your child's hands and one foot on white foam board. Cut out the pieces. Use the hands as angel wings and the foot as the body. The sole of the foot should be the angel's head. Draw a face, robe, belt and other details using permanent marker. Punch a hole in the wings and at both sides of the angel's body. Attach the wings to the body using brads.
