What to do on a bored rainy day? Get your water paint out and let’s start finger printing!
First I let him do some ‘practise’ on a piece of paper.
Upon reaching the ‘pro‘ level, I let him do the finger printing on a new piece of paper! 😀
There! After the paint has dried up, I help him draw some stripes and wings and his finger prints are now Buzzing Busy Bees!
