Toddler Valentine Fingerprint Art
***So I have noooo idea why the internet fairies decided to send out a comment response as a post yesterday, sorry about that. I you wanted to know the kind of sausage I used in this one pot recipe, it was Hillshire. I double checked at Publix on Monday :)
Hey Friends! I hope yall are staying warm and dry wherever you are. We have had a mix of rain and “snow” down here in Georgia and it has kept us indoors for the better part of a week. This mama is going a little stir crazy…you? I’m here to share a fun little Valentine art project that passed the better part of 45 minutes for us the other day & turned out really cute. I plan on repeating this project today so thought I would share the fun.
So it’s SUPER simple, all you need is some construction paper, painter’s tape, and kid friendly paint (we used this Crayola paint *affiliate). I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves and then I’ll leave you a few tips below.
The last step would be to peel the painter’s tape off. A few tips from our experience….1. make sure you have something under the construction paper to protect your work space (we used an open cereal box). 2. Use a smock or large bib to keep paint off their clothes. 3. Keep baby wipes near by for easy clean up 4. Use scissors to cut clean tape lines so you get straight edges. 5. Shake your paint and let your toddler just use the paint left in the lid. Shake again when you run out. 6. Depending on the age of your little one, you might want to help them make sure they have their fingerprints where the paint meets the paper.
So there you go, easy peasy! We did a heart too (this time Chickadee used a paintbrush)….the possibilities here are really endless!
