Summer Fun No. 27, Fingerprint Painting

Easiest (to set up), and most loved, activity of our week!  It had been awhile since we'd done an art project so everyone was extra excited to have a chance to paint outside.  We started out using fingerprints to create but soon EJ discovered she could use her finger as a brush and she started painting with both techniques (and shared her discovery of course).

Jack drew for himself and the girls...

Then they all got to the serious business of painting!




We started with this (tempera paint)...

used only these (and some marker paper)...

and ended up with these beauties.
{hot dog, soccer ball, rainbow, baseball, & 2 flowers}

Painting with fingers = great time for kids! They all really like art projects. And paint and outdoors, you're golden!

Super clever! Jack's baseball rocks, as does the fun fingerprint rainbow :-)
