An adorable way to have your little one make some art
This is an adorable craft that your kids can really get creative with. This allows them to paint with their hands and create a nice piece of art for the house.

  • Step 1

    Begin by mixing your paint to your desired shade. I wanted a grey/blue colour for my owl so I mixed some navy/black with white paint. This step you can do yourself or it makes a great opportunity to begin teaching children about the colour wheel and how to mix certain colours to get others.

    Once you're happy with your paint colours, you can either paint their hand or have them dip their hand in paint and put it down where they would like their owl to sit.

  • Step 2

    Once you have your owl, let it dry for a little bit. Get your kids to go wash their hands off and by the time they get back they can start adding details. They can add branches, leaves, a sun, clouds, grass, anything they want to their portrait. They can also give the owl a face and a beak.

  • Step 3

    Once you're happy with your owl you're finished! Once it's completely dried you can also frame it and have the kids give it to their moms on mothers day.

    Another nice thing is the kids add their name in the bottom corner. They can also add any saying or phrases they may want. Let them customize it however they please, this is what makes it truly special.
