I is for Ice Cream (Handprint Art & Free Worksheets) super cute hand art alphabet craft for toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. Plus includes free printable  letter I worksheets for practice too!

This craft uses some paint and simple supplies to make a cute ice cream on a cone. It's always a lot of fun to for the kids to see how their hand print can turn into something else. For this craft, we make a pink hand print for the scoop of ice cream, although any favorite color can be used. It's a simple and hands-on way to learn about the letter I!


  • Letter "I" is for Ice Cream printable
  • brown crayon
  • pink paint (or another favorite color)
  • paint brush
  • wipes to clean hands

How to do the Letter "I" is for Ice Cream Handprint Craft:

First, print the printable to go along with this craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our handprint, and we do the next page while the handprint is drying.

Start by drawing the ice cream cone. First draw a triangle shape, and then draw overlapping diagnal lines as shown above. Or you can get creative and design your own cone! Younger kids may need some help with this.

To make the hand print, paint the whole palm and fingers one color. We used light pink to make ours look like strawberry ice cream.

Turn the paper upside down to make it easier to make the hand print. Place the hand on top of the cone, with the fingers overlapping the cone. This makes it look like the "ice cream" is melting down the sides of the cone. How cute! Let dry and your ice cream is complete! Rinse hands with water or wipe clean.

While your heart is drying, complete the second page of the "I" is for Ice Cream worksheet for more letter "I" practice!
