Handprint Family Craft

Handprint family craft perfect no matter what your family looks like.

Handprints are all about putting yourself in the picture. Here’s a way to include the whole family no matter how many members. Have all the family get in on the fun and create a lasting memory.


The center part of your hand is made up of five separate bones. Each finger on your hand has three bones, except for your thumb, which has two. So between your wrists, hands, and all your fingers, you’ve got a grand total of 54 bones — all ready to help you grasp things, write your name, pick up the phone, or throw a softball!
