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:
- Non-toxic finger paint
- Construction paper
- Newspaper or drop cloth to cover painting surface
What you do:
- Squeeze various colors of finger paint in different sizes on one side of construction paper
- Fold the paper in half
- 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.
- Open the paper to see the symmetrical designs
- Allow paint to dry
We love how your baby can create art that will be a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
