Graduation Keepsake Craft Idea
Graduation season is upon us and today I’m sharing a SIMPLE kids craft idea that can be easily framed and turned into a gift for young kids to gift their parents, grandparents or even teachers on the last day of school.
On that note, today’s “my future looks bright” tutorial is an inexpensive paper and paint handprint craft idea that will give kids the perfect excuse to get a little messy as they graduate from preschool or kindergarten, all while creating a bright & colorful piece of artwork that is sure to be loved by anyone who lays their eyes on it.
To complete this end of school year craft idea, all you need to do is print the freebie file that I provided below in the supply list, grab some washable yellow craft paint and have your child add their handprint to the center to complete the lightbulb craft. That’s it!
With very basic materials and steps, this a simple graduation art project that ANYONE can recreate. No fancy skills or elaborate materials. I promise, it’s that easy to recreate! Just keep on scrolling to grab the freebie from us! Happy crafting, my friends!

- Next pick a hand. Any hand will do. Paint the palm and the fingers of your child’s hand completely yellow and press it on the printable, right in the center of the lightbulb design.
- Now carefully lift up their hand to reveal the handprint design. Use baby wipes to clean off excess paint from their hand.
- If desired and while the paint is still wet, shake some loose craft glitter on top of the handprint design for a little extra sparkle.
