A little art project to do with your kids. It has been my favorite one for the holidays for many years. Of course, the younger the child, the cuter. The first one is the hand and foot of a 2 1/2 year old. The hardest part of doing this is how you position it on the paper. You will just have to look and plan ahead. Well the second hardest would be actually get a good print. My suggestion is to put your child in a high chair. Have cleanup wipes close by. You have to work fast. Don't sit the paint near them, hah. Good luck.
You can use any color paper. I use card stock so it is archival. I also use quality paint......folk art. It is one of those projects that parents like, but it is mostly done by the adult. You need to paint Santa on.....his face is their thumbprint, add the reins, antlers. The snowflakes are done with a stamp and paint. Those little gold stars are relaly cute on this. Do the eyes on Santa and Rudy with a permanent marker. Also you can paint a landscape at the bottom. The second print is from a chubby 15 month old. Love his chubbo foot. He wasn't too crazy about what I was doing. He just looked at me like, "Have you lost your mind." Have fun. You will have paint most likely all over you and the child.
