I picked up a great book from the library this past week called "123 I Can Make Prints". It is the perfect book to use to introduce your kindergartner to the print painting techniques. Ethan and I have been having a great time learning new methods to create some fun images.
This swarm of bees was made with my sons fingers: the bodies were made from his index finger, the heads are from the tip of his pinkie, and the wings were made from his thumb prints. The bees got their stripes and antenna's from a black felt tip marker which he used after the paint dried.
This adorable caterpillar was made by pressing the paint bottle cap into paint and then pressing the cap onto the paper. After the paint was dry Ethan used a black felt tip marker to draw the happy face, antenna, and all those legs (he made sure that caterpillar had a lot of legs!!). To make the caterpillars feet he used the eraser side of a #2 pencil which he dipped in red paint and then pressed it onto the paper. Cute little caterpillar!
