Once the paint dried. I used red, yellow, and orange paint to create a fish and octopus out of the children's hands. For the octopus I paint their 4 fingers (leaving their thumb clean) and pressed it onto the paper overlapping to create the octopus' 8 legs. For the fish, I paint their palms red, then half of their fingers orange, and the tips of their fingers yellow to create our colorful tropical fish.
After their handprints dried, we used markers and googly eyes to decorate our pictures. These were a hit with the parents because we all love a project that uses handprints!
