fingerprint christmas tree art

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. Create a winter or Christmas scene with some paint and your fingertips! Just dip your finger into paint and it becomes your tool to paint your scene!
Step 1

If you wish, you can lightly draw your winter scene onto your canvas first using a pencil.

Step 2

Use a paintbrush to paint your background and let it dry.
TIP: For the snow, you can leave the canvas white or you can use paint to add white snow.

Step 3

Create trees by dipping your finger into green paint and pressing it onto the canvas to make the shape, then fill it in with more fingerprints.

Step 4

Create a snowman by dipping your finger into white paint and pressing it three times to make a snowman.

Step 5

Use your paintbrush to add more embellishments to the trees, details to your snowman and snowflakes to the sky.
