Handprint and Footprint Art
For a rainy afternoon of imaginative fun, handprint and footprint art can't be beat. All you need is construction paper, kids' water-based paint, markers, buttons or googly eyes, and glue.
Paint the palms of your child's hands or the soles of his feet, and make prints on the construction paper. Once the prints dry, turn your child loose to create funny characters out of the shapes, using the markers, buttons, and googly eyes to create faces-no two look alike!
