Letter Y

This craft is great for kindergartners as they learn the letter Y. Don’t forget to print the free printable to go along with it for practicing writing the letter Y.

This craft uses some paint and simple supplies to make a y is for yak handprint. It’s always a lot of fun to for the kids to see how their hand print can turn into something else. For this activity, we use brown paint for the main part of the head. Next, we make the grey horns, black eyes, and big, pink snout. It’s a fun and simple way to make an adorable yak handprint!

Now it’s time to make the handprint! Make a handprint near the center of the page, making sure the fingers are close together, with fingers pointing downwards towards the bottom of the paper. It’s best to let this dry before moving to the next step.
