Handprint Alphabet – U for… Unicorn

| September 1, 2012 | 14 Comments

Well…. as the Alphabet progress… we do need rely a little on magical and fantasy beings. Afterall, not all the letters of the alphabet are the easiest for “animal crafts”. SO. Today, we have a unicorn.

Again we went online first and looked at unicorns. Red Ted decided that we needed lots of “clouds too”. When it came to actually adding the detail, for some reason he REALLY DIDN’T want to. I have no idea why. We even had tears. So this is Red Ted’s handprint, his clouds and my details. Sorry!

We did some handprints on green (for grass) and blue (for sky) paper. But as Red Ted didn’t ant to finish them, I only did the blue one for you… hoping that maybe one day he will feel like doing the green ones himself!

I added wool for the main and hair. A little bit of metal paper for the horn and a star (Red Ted REALLY wanted  a star!). Then black detail for the face and hoofs.
