This isn't a normal hand print craft because you are making a print of the side of your hand this time. So dip the side of your hand with the pinky on it in red paint, and then push the side of your hand into paper...as seen in figure #1 above. Then dip your thumb in red paint and make 3 thumbprints in the positions I show you in figure #2 above. Then paint the legs which look like #5 shapes, as seen in figure #3 above. Also paint the arms.
