PRINT at home or your local print shop. This FREE printable is set to A4 size paper (standard print paper size). This print will suit aprox a 5 year old or younger (this will depend on the size of your child’s hand of course).

We highly recommend printing onto a medium/heavy card for this - not paper. Paper will wrinkle as soon as you add paint.

CREATE Use white paint to press a child's handprints to create Santa's beard. The best way to do this is using a paint brush - paint a coat of paint onto the child’s hand. Avoid dipping the whole hand into paint as this can cause too much paint and can turn into a mess pretty quick.
Another option (if you don’t like the thought of messy paint) is to trace your child’s hand onto white card and then cut this handprint out and stick it on the print.
