Fingerpainting with Hair Gel

Clear hair gel on a tray was hard for the children to see so they added dribbles of colour.

It glides nicely around and around adding each colour as they go.
If they wanted to keep a picture of their fingerpainting they made a print.
Ta Da!
I love this picture of literacy in action.  How closely he's paying attention to what grandma is writing.
She loves the feel between her fingers.
And  making butterfly wings.
Being interested in just painting not the finished picture. 
She is more interested in making prints of her hands then what's under the paper.
I appreciate when parents offer their ideas, like this mother.
She showed her son how to make a mirror image of his print.


  1. I like this idea. It is fun for kids to do printing. Thanks for sharing!
