These skeleton handprints were simple enough for even the youngest of my hooligans to make.  All you need is a paper plate, some paint and a styrofoam produce tray. – Happy Hooligans

I’m just smitten with this adorable handprint owl from CindyDerosier.com.  Owls and fall go hand in hand! Or handprint in handprint.  Ha!

Use Q-tips for bones, and construct this skeleton hand from Crafty Morning.

The hooligans had a ton of fun making these cute, little handprint spiders. The process we use to paint the webs is always a HUGE hit here.  HINT:  There are golf-balls involved.  – Happy Hooligans

These charming handprint leaves by House of Burke took the internet by storm when I first shared them. Unfortunately, I can’t find the blog online anymore, so I can’t link to the original post. They look easy enough to make though!

This leaf handprint wreath would be a super project to do with a group of kids. Have everyone make a leaf to contribute to the wreath, and then hang it on the door of your daycare or classroom!  – Kiwi Crate by Mama Miss

Fall is the season for gathering nuts!  If your kids are curious about the little acorns they find on the sidewalk and the yard, these acorn handprints would be a fun project to do with them. – Crafty Morning

It’s apple season!  Our tissue and button apple tree craft is a great tactile project. The textured tree trunk, the crumply tissue paper and the hard, shiny buttons are so much fun for little hands to explore. – Happy Hooligans

Here’s one that’s simple enough for the toddlers to do.  A paper plate apple with a handprint leaf attached to the stem! – Fun Handprint Art

Check out this back-to-school apple handprint by I Heart Arts and Crafts!  I love her idea for adding the date to make it a first-day-of-school keepsake.
