Finger Print Rainbows




As you may remember, I have 2 frames in my kitchen that my kids put artwork in every season as seen here. We have had our snowmen in there for quite a while and I have been ready for our spring picture. We made rainbows out of their finger prints using stamp pads and then we made a sun using the side of their fist and orange rays using their whole finger. We cut the sun and the rainbow out and pasted it on a blue sheet of paper and glued a few stretched out cotton balls for clouds. Now I am a lot happier to see the spring pictures especially since we had warmer weather this weekend. I am ready for SPRING!!

Supplies needed:
white and blue paper
cotton balls
glue
ink pads or paint

Those are really cool rainbows! the kids did really well at following the pattern! Little Bear's fingerprints would have been all over the paper!

What a fun activity! I love that you display your kids' artwork in frames as decor. I'll have to remember this one.

It is awesome the way they manage to do such a great rainbow like that. It's also impressive that it was made of many fingerprints.
