This is my favorite art project from 2014 we did. (I only have this one picture of it.) We did this as a family project since Sophia was only about a year and a half old at the time. So having an extra person helping definitely keeps the mess contained better.
What you will need:
Water color paper
A cup with water for setting dirty paint brushes in
Wet wipes (for easy clean up)
Tape the word you want on to the paper. Trim it with the razor knife to your liking. Paint your little one’s hand and have them place it over the paper. Repeat in as many colors as you like.
TIP: You want to make sure all the edges of the tape have some paint or it wont show up. (You can see the top corner of the L disappear).
