Finger Painting

 Get your hands and fingers dirty making a wonderful painting!

Craft Project Directions:
Let's have some fabulous finger painting fun! To finger paint you need finger paint (you can make your own - or you can buy some at the store ), finger paint paper, a bowl of water, and spoon to put the finger paint on the paper.

To begin, make a batch of finger paint using one of the three different recipes we list in the recipe section. Some of the recipes create a slightly thicker paint than others.

Next take a piece of paper and dampen it by sprinkling water on it. Dip your fingers in the water and then fling the water onto the paper.

Next take your spoon and spoon a spoonful of finger paint onto the paper. Spread it around with your fingers, open palms, fingernails, thumb, fingers, etc. and create a fun picture, design, or pattern. In addition to your hands you could use materials like q-tips,a comb, a fork, etc. You decide! If you want add another color of paint and repeat the process. When you are finished creating, let your painting dry and hang it up someplace special.

Enjoy Crafting!
