Handprint Alphabet – K for Kingfisher

| June 23, 2012 | 15 Comments

Just a quick post today… as being a busy busy beeeee… we are onto K for….. KINGFISHER. We tried doing a K for Kangaroo with a baby Joey. But we failed miserably. It just didn’t look like a kangaroo.. so we went back to the drawing board and came up with a KINGFISHER. I let Red Ted use my very special shiny acrylic paint. And as we were running late on this one, we did it whilst Pip Squeak was napping (no other time!). So only one set, I am afraid!

We painted the hand 2/3 shiny blue and 1/3 shiny red.

Then we had to add a head in blue and orange. Followed by a beak, feet and eyes:

Yay! Kingerfishers done!

  1. LOVE love love it! I often see a kingfisher on our walk on the river path and through a nature preserve. I will have to remember this craft next time I see the little fellow and point it out to my son. It is one of my favorite birds to spot! I’ll have to share this with my FB page! Thanks again for your endless stream of inspiration!

      Awe thank you! Yes, the Kangaroo was a disappointment… but the Kingfisher more than made up for it! :-)

    These are brilliant! Please continue with the rest of the alphabet. This will keep my boys busy for a while during the summer holidays.
