Awareness Craft Projects

Hand Print Heart of Acceptance

Large piece of paper
Washable paints in assorted colors (each color on a paper plate)
Paint Brushes

1. Press the palm side of your hand down on a plate of paint, and use a paint brush to smooth the paint into an even layer on your hand. 
2. Press your hand down onto the piece of paper to make a hand print.
3. Continue the process, placing hand prints in different directions with different colors to create a heart shape. The more people that participate, the better, but it is OK to create a heart with one or two people. 

While each hand print is different, they all come together to create something beautiful!
