The kids I nanny, B&K, wanted to do a paint project yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to make something for their mom, for Mother’s Day (hello, it’s on Sunday!). First we consulted Pinterest and found some cute inspiration, but we wanted to branch out a little on our own, too. K decided she wanted to ‘foot’ paint a butterfly and ‘hand’ paint a sun…a really cute summer day scene. B decided that he wanted to do a couple of flowers with his hands and feet! I love doing finger painting activites, but make sure you keep some towels and paper towels close by because it gets messy (although washable paint is great, we still don’t like it covering everything!).
Here are the finished pictures:
All you need for this is your imagination, paper to paint on, and finger paints!
