Finger Painting – A Beautiful Wall Art!

Painting is yet another fun activity that a preschooler would love to do. There are non-toxic finger paints (like tempura) available in craft stores. You can even prepare finger paint at home with edible colors. I introduced paint to our LO after he turned 2. Till then he was very busy with legos/bike/trucks and he was least interested in painting.

The other day when Skandha was getting messy with the paint, I thought why not do some wall art. We have been decorating his room and wanted to have wall accents. A wall art made by him would be a perfect d├ęcor for his room! I wanted to keep the art as simple as possible, so we (LO & us) settled with a flower. Skandhu loves flowers. We have few plants in our deck and he loves to water them :)

I used green & yellow felt sheets, a brown paper bag and orange color finger paint to make this simple art. Skandhu helped in sticking the leaves & stem. In fact he loved playing with the glue more ;)

He was so proud when we hung the wall art in his room! A evening worth spent with our LO!
