Olive You Thumbprint Art
We used green paint to make a whole page of green thumbprints. Let them dry. Once the green paint is dry, layer a smaller print of red paint right on top. We had Big Sister make the larger green prints with her thumb and Little Sister use the tip of her finger to make the smaller red spot. You could just have the child press harder with the whole pad of their thumb to get a bigger circle for the olive and use the tip of their pinkie finger to make a smaller red spot on the olive.
The best part of this craft is the olive jokes that you get to say…all day.
Olive you a whole lot!
