How to Make 3D Illusion Handprints

3D illusion hand prints


Want a fun and easy project that can be done with both little and big kids with eye popping results?  All you need is white paper, a pencil and some assorted colored markets. Here’s how to make them.





Step 1: Have your child trace their hand in pencil on a sheet of white paper.


Step 2: Using markers, draw horizontal lines across the whole length of the paper. Where your handprint is (including the arm and wrist) have the line curve upwards in proportion to the amount the child’s wrist is tall. Younger children may need your help tracing their hand and getting the first few lines drawn so that you can show them where to draw the curve.





Step 3: After you draw an assortment of lines a wide distance apart across the paper, then fill in the white area with lines in different colors and watch the handprint appear!

  3. So cool! My daughter’s class did that at school this past year – I have it hanging on the side of the fridge since it’s fun to look at. I think I might want to make one, too! ;)
