At Christmas time we made Christmas tree shaped finger paint projects. I had taken an idea I got from Pinterest and made it into a Christmas project instead. They turned out nicely. I shared the idea with the babies teacher so that we could use it for the animal version, with an animal theme. She served animal crackers and yogurt for the snack along with juice as well. There are so many things that your child can learn from this project. Get creative with it and make any shape you like to base your lesson on.
- This will teach the children fine motor skills (painting)
- Color recognition
- Following directions
- Animal facts
- Great for a Noahs ark theme in Sunday school if you have helpers for the painting. :)
