I’ve always had a soft spot for handprint crafts. I love to turn my little one’s handprint into an adorable craft I can hang on the fridge.
But, even more than that, I love to preserve their handprint the size it is today. Then, we can compare that handprint to previous handprints to see how much they’ve grown.
These handprint winter animals crafts are so much fun for preschoolers to make and display during your winter preschool activities.
Most of these adorable winter crafts for preschoolers require items that you’ve probably got stashed away with your craft supplies already.
