What You’ll Need
• craft paints (I like these.)
• construction paper
• glue stick
What You’ll Do
Start by tracing a super simple flowerpot onto a piece of brown construction paper. If you use two shapes, kids can cut them out and glue them on your white paper. This is great motor skills practice for them.
Next, paint the upper half of your child’s palm green. Have them line up the bottom of the paint with the top of the flowerpot.
Help them press their palm down to create the stems for their fingerprint flowers.
Have your child make a thumbprint at the top of each flower stem. They can make them all the same color, or they can use a different color for each one. Let them get as creative as they want.
Then, have them use their fingers to put petals around the center of each flower. If you want, you can draw a few circles as a guide for where they should put each fingerprint.
Once the flowers are complete, let them dry before putting them on display or giving them as a gift/card.
