Fun Finger Paint Craft for Kids

Finger painting can be fun for kids and babies. It allows babies to begin to create art – always a plus for imagination and creativity – and the symmetrical designs helps children learn about mirror images.

What you need:

  1. Non-toxic finger paint
  2. Construction paper
  3. Newspaper or drop cloth to cover painting surface

What you do:

  1. Squeeze various colors of finger paint in different sizes on one side of construction paper
  2. Fold the paper in half
  3. Have your child press down on the paper with her foot or hand. She can rub across the paper to spread the paint. If you are doing this with a baby, just have baby sit on the folded piece of paper to spread the paint.
  4. Open the paper to see the symmetrical designs
  5. Allow paint to dry

We love how your baby can create art that will be a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
