Fingerpaint Follies craft

Dip your fingers into some fun with Fingerpaint Follies! You'll say "thumbs-up" to this monoprint idea from The Crayola® Factory™.

  • 1.

    Spread newspaper over your art area. Choose your favorite color of Crayola® Washable Fingerpaint. Pour a thin layer of paint on a cookie sheet.

  • 2.

    With your fingers and hands, trace swirls and streaks in the paint. Spread your fingers. Smoosh the paint around. Try designs with the sides of your hands. Does the paint feel cool and smooth? When you're finished, wipe your hands with a paper towel.

  • 3.

    While the paint is still wet, make a monoprint (mono means one). Gently press white paper on top of your design. Lift. Dry.

  • 4.

    Color unpainted areas with Crayola Kid's First Washable Crayons. Feel the differences in the textures of the dry paint and the slick crayon.
