Handprint Alphabet – N for Narwhal

| July 14, 2012 | 11 Comments

Now N was prooving a little bit of a challenge, what or what should we make? Many Ns are a little obscure – Nene or Nyala. Others are just a bit too plain – Nightingale or Newt – would just be mistaken for the simpler relative (bird or lizard). And then someone (or many) said to me “how about a Narwhal, that is the unicorns of the sea, you know?! How how could I resist THAT! The unicorn of the see indeed. Wonderful! (we were  —> this close <— to cheating and doing a Nemo). So a Narwhal it was!

Key characteristics: a longish whale with a long point nose, a contrast under belly and some have spots….

We left the thumb paint free. And mixed the light blue under belly a little into the rest of the body. handprint alphabet handprint crafts

Red Ted added a blue fin, a long swordfish like nose, spots and eyes. Oh and another mouth and nose!

And aaah Pip Squeak’s… is just wonderful as always!

    I so need to get some of those teeny googly eyes after all the projects you have been using them in- so cute! I had a feeling you were going to choose narwhal…. couldn’t resist the unicorn of the sea :)

    Yay! It worked with a different email & using the handprint blog URL instead of our craft blog URL…. not sure which is the problem though :/ How weird!!!

    Hi! I love the handprint alphabet! I have printed out all of them (except N-see below) to use with a non verbal student…….think they will bring a smile to his face and be so helpful with making sign language fun for him.
    I am having trouble printing out the letter N for Narwhal. Can you help? Thanks for all your hard work!
