Simple Quarantine Craft Project for the Whole Family

Since I had a lot of time on my hands (no pun intended), I decided to make a quarantine family craft project that included the entire family.

In light of this difficult time, I thought it would be nice to look back one day on this moment.

I hung this picture in a space in my home, to remind me what is important because, “When the world was apart, we stayed together.”

This lock down project is a simple, but meaningful piece of art for any space in your home.

Trace Everyone’s Hands or Paws

Begin tracing everyone’s hand or paw prints, onto scrap paper to make a pattern.

I chose to trace the left hand for everyone in my family.

I have small children, so I had to be sneak to trace their hands.

If you have a toddler that can’t sit still like mine, finger paint might work better than tracing.

Paint your child’s hand in finger paint then have them press their hand onto the scrap paper. You can then cut this outline of their hand out.

Another option is to skip using the card stock paper for the hands, and just use finger paint for all of the hands.

Materials Used for Quarantine Family Craft Project:

  • Scrap Paper
  • Card Stock or Construction Paper (for Hands)
  • Card Stock (for the background)
  • Glue or Double Sided Tape
  • Small Scissors
  • Optional- Fiskers Paper Cutter (I love this thing!)
  • Picture Frame (My frame is 11 x 14)
  • Finger paint (Optional)

Cut Out All of the Hands

Trace the patterns onto card stock or construction paper then cut out the hands again.

I recommend using small scissors to cut the heavier paper because It can get a little tricky cutting around the tighter spaces of the hand.

Select Wording for the Family Craft Project

Choose your wording for the quarantine family craft project then type it into Microsoft Word.

If you are confident you have the correct sizing, print directly onto the card stock or construction paper.

I printed the wording out in landscape to make sure it went across the entire portion of the frame.

Cut Out the Wording

Use a Fisker’s Paper Cutter to help size the wording and make clean cuts.

Then use double sided tape or glue to stick the wording to the paper that you are using for your background.

Print wording in Microsoft Word onto card stock or construction paper. Then use Fiskers Paper Cutter to make all of the cuts.

Adhere the Wording and Hands

After you have the wording in the correct place, start lining up the hands.

Place the hands onto the paper with double side tape or glue.

Then frame your project!
