With my mother’s birthday coming up in less than a week, I wanted to make sure Caroline created the cutest finger painting craft as part of her birthday present for Gigi.
Gigi watches Caroline while mommy and daddy go to work. We are so thankful for her and thankful for the bond they get to make!
When she gets older, she can make a card or another, more in depth craft, but for now, this finger painting craft was perfect for her.
I remember years ago seeing the idea for this on Pinterest and I figured I would adapt it to fit what we had in the house. Making those adaptations, did teach me a tip or two that I want to share with you to make your finger painting craft turn out even BETTER than ours did.
This was a relatively simple craft to create and it was extremely easy clean up!
All you need :
- Finger paints in colors of your choice
- disposable plate or something to put your globs of finger paint on
- large paper
- tape (we used scotch tape and I DO NOT recommend that- try Painter’s tape)
Super Simple Instructions :
- Tape out your word onto the large paper.
- Set out paint on your disposable paint.
- Let your child create a masterpiece. I made sure she covered the general areas of the letters.
- Let paint dry.
- Peel off the taped letters and share your creation!
- Clean off your kid with warm soap and water (and you too most likely).
One of the reasons I don’t recommend Scotch tape is that when I went to peel it off, it started peeling off parts of the paper too. I’m not stressing over it, it gives the piece an extra artistic feel. At least, that’s what I am telling myself.
This adorable finger painting craft is super easy. It would make a perfect birthday present, Mother’s Day present, Christmas present or tradition to start, etc. It’s super easy. You can tape out any word!
I bet this would even be a fun thing to create as a piece of art for your child’s room. If you tape out their name and let them go to town on the masterpiece, it’s something they’ll always have that they created for their own room.
As this was our first real art crafting with Caroline, I think it turned out pretty good. It could use some work and I learned some pointers along the way, but, for us, it’s perfect!
