Fingerprint Trees Project

Artists use their hands and fingers -- literally! -- to make one-of-a-kind, keep sake art. This project is perfect for younger artists: an adult can trace their hand and arm, with the child painting in the "trunk" and adding "leaves" by dipping fingers in paint.

Materials needed: Acrylic paints, 8.5 x 11" thick white paper. Optional: Oil pastels, colored pencils, crayons, stamps.
