Handprint caterpillars- painting with babies

Children did this in lots of different ways. Some had adult help and used their hands, like my example- kindly provided by my 2 year old. The youngest child to do this was about 4 months old. Others drew a simple face using a felt pen, then just painted a body themselves. Either way, lots of fun and lots of mess!

What you need:

  • poster paints in bright colours (you could use specialist hand print paints. I find these less messy, but the results aren’t quite as bright as they don’t use as much paint.)
  • A3 paper – or bigger
  • paint brushes
  • felt pen
These make much less mess.
