When he is in such a mood for mess, some finger painting ideas come in handy.
Here are some of the drawings I have tried with him. One of them was the one they did at his school and we recreated it at home also over a weekend.
1) Finger painted giraffe
a) Print a single yellow handprint. The palm forms the body, the fingers the legs and the thumb forms the tail.
b) Then using the side of the hand, print the neck and add a fingerprint for the head.
c) When the yellow paint is dried, use brown fingerprints to make the giraffe’s spots.
2) Caterpillar and the flowers:
a) Create the caterpillar using thumbprint with alternating colors
b) For the flower, use 4 thumbprints for the petals and 2 for leaves.
c) For the butterfly, use 4 prints of the same color
d) Similarly, created sun using the index finger prints in circle.
e) Once all the colors are dried, Finish the butterfly, caterpillar and the flowers using a black marker.
So, go ahead and give these crafts a try with your little ones and see how much they enjoy it.
And, this is my submission to Artsy craftsy challenge by Mindful Meanderings too.
