What we used:
Finger paint in rainbow colors
and paper towels
My 3 yr and 5 yr both made fingerprint birds with me.
I love how each of them are so different even though they are so much the same. A little personality to each work of art.
With Spring time and St. Patrick’s Day coming up, it was a great time to have fun with the rainbow theme and go over our colors (even more). Big brother does great with his colors but little brother is still figuring them all out. And it is never to early to start exposing baby brother to them. These rainbow projects are great for sneaking in some learning and having fun.
What we did:
I squeezed just a little fingerprint on to a plate of each color. I had paper towels out to wipe the finger off after each dip so the colors did not mix. I got out the paper and drew a tree and branch. I had the fingers add a red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple fingerprint to the branch. I left them to dry. Once dry, I came back and drew on eyes, feet, beak, and a few extras, clouds….
