Finger Painting Project : Christmas Tree
This is a nice project to make in December. Even small kids will enjoy painting this Christmas tree with their hands. Older children can make the decorations more sophisticated.
This Christmas Finger Paint Project is sure to be a success!
Supplies you'll need:
- recycled styrofoam trays
- finger paint (brown, green, yellow, orange, red, blue, purple, etc.)
- white paper
- and, to clean the hands: bucket, water and soap
Pour some brown paint in the tray and press your hand in the paint.
Then press your hand on a sheet of paper with your fingers pointing towards the edge of the paper. Preferably, keep your fingers apart to form the roots of the tree.
Pour some green paint in the tray, dip your hand in the green paint and make handprints to form the tree.
Work in a fan movement upwards and always have your fingers spread open, pointing outward.
Put several colours such as yellow, red, orange, blue, purple, etc.. on another syrofoam tray to paint the lights of the Christmas tree.
Dip the tip of a finger in paint and tap the colour around the tree to decorate it with lights and continue with different colours.
When the paint is dry, you can use white glue and glitter to add garlands.
You can also add a star made of glitter on top of the tree if you want.
Every tree will be different. This is what mine looked like:
