Handprint Araham Lincoln

This is a cute craft I got from "Hand-Shaped Art," by Diane Bonica.

To make this Lincoln you will need:

black construction paper
white construction paper

Have the children place their arm with an open hand on a vertical piece of construction paper. Trace their straight arm with the open hand at the bottom. If the children are able, have them cut it out.

You will then need a face. Have them cut a circle out of white or flesh colored construction paper. Let them draw a face on the circle and glue it inside the open hand. Finally, take a small rectangle piece of black paper and glue it in place as the brim of the hat. I thought he turned out pretty good.
