Friday Family Fun - Finger Paint Figures

Finger painting is fun for all ages. Just dip your finger in paint and move it around - structured or unstructured! When done with family its even more enjoyable. Kids love to see the parents get messy with their hands, believe me! It gives them a happiness thinking that their parents are like them after all! :-) So here is a beautiful art which we did as family by finger painting.
I had a pre-stretched canvas and prepared it with gesso. Gesso is like a paint primer and protects the surface of the canvas as well the brushes. Once the gesso was completely dry, we can paint on the canvas.

My husband, two kids and I used our thumbs and index fingers (think my little one used his pinkie too) and made patterns like flowers.

What is a flower that doesn't attract a bee! So we accommodated visiting bees too, and buttterflies and ladybug!

We used a black pen to draw.

Voila! We have this beautiful art hanging in our living room. And it sure caught the attention of a visitor today.

Have fun finger painting and making it come alive!

Happy weekend!
