Hand and Footprint Lizard (Iguana) Kid's Craft

My little man is really starting to bloom and show his interests- one of which is dinosaurs and animals of all kinds! There is nothing I love more than going with my child's interests and allowing them to chose the topic of what we learn and create. This weeks lesson is all about lizards- and this time we made one using our hand and footprints and creating a iguana or lizard.

Classified: Easy and is great for toddler up!

What you need:
  • Paint: green, yellow, orange, etc.
  • Sponge brush
  • White paper (12"x18" or larger)
  • Your child's hand and feet
  • Wiggle Eyes
  • Glue



What to do:
1. Read your child a fun book about Lizards. Have all supplies ready to go!

2. Paint your child's foot and print onto the white piece of paper. Continue to paint and print so each foot is a top of the next one in a straight line.

3. Paint your child's hand yellowish orange and print along the top of the feet print to make spikes. Allow all to dry.

4. Assist your toddler to paint on a tail.

5. Add details with marker and glue on Wiggle eyes.

Note: This was a very face-paced and messy project. Images are limited due to a squirmy 2 year old!
