Elephant Handprint Canvas

Create a memory to last a lifetime making this ADORABLE Elephant Handprint Canvas with your little ones today!

So here it is, my new favorite hand print canvas art! I thought when my daughter smudged her hand while stamping the gray elephant it would look strange, but actually it made her little elephant legs larger and cuter. This was so fun to create together, even my one year old daughter helped use her finger to paint the lines for the grass. With my guidance my son used his finger to paint the brown tree trunks and the green circles for the tree tops. After Maxwell helped glue the elephant eyes, I got creative by adding the accessories to our elephants. This Elephant Hand Print Canvas was pretty simple and stinking adorable.

Recently, I started a Canvas Painting Wall in my Children’s toy room. One day, I hope to have hundreds of canvas paintings all over a huge wall in my home. A wall to reminisce of all the wonderful memories of making prints with my children and watching them grow. To make each canvas movable I use Command Picture Hanging Strips.

You may use these washable paints from Crayola to create the canvas art
