Handprint Succulents

Updated: May 28, 2020

Hello Gardeners!

Who needs something bright and cute for their walls? Today on the blog, we have one of our favorite crafts to date and bonus - it is PERFECT for gardeners ages 2-12 - although gardeners of all ages are welcome! If you've been looking for some fun activities to keep your kids busy and creative, you won't want to miss this one - it's our Handprint Succulents 🌵craft!

Here is what you'll need:

Paint (choose paint that is skin-safe!)

Construction paper




First things first, let's make our succulents! Paint your little one's hands/fingers/feet with green paint. You can choose different parts of the hands or feet to get certain shapes an even use little bits of purple or red to add colorful accents to your succulents.

Once you've made all the finger and handprints you'd like, cut out planter shapes from your construction paper. If your gardener isn't quite ready to go solo with the scissors, use the hand-over-hand method to help them start to develop those muscles!
