This is an adorable craft for toddlers, Preschoolers, Kindergarteners, and even slightly older children.

The bodies of the elephant and lion are created with the child’s hand prints, and they couldn’t come out any cuter. Below you will find the step by step tutorial for making these adorable handprint pictures.
