Kiddie Art Bathroom Project
Let the kids give the bathroom their stamp of approval with this cute kiddie art project.
You will need:
- A piece of white paper
- Paint tray
- Paint roller
- Water-based paint in yellow, orange and green
- Permanent marker
- 300 x 400mm picture frame with mounting board at 200 x 300mm (sufficient for an A4 page)
Add the yellow paint to the paint tray and spread it evenly with your roller.
Ask your little one to step into the paint and make sure you have got enough paint on his or her foot to make a clear print on the white paper. This might take a few tries but is loads of fun.
Top tip: Lots of children have ticklish feet. That’s why it’s easier to dip a foot into the paint than to paint it with a brush.
Press your child’s foot onto the white piece of paper. This will create the body of the duck shape with the toes as the tail feathers.
Paint the duck’s head (using brush or fingers!) on top of the heel of the footprint.
Now dip an index finger in the orange paint and press it down on the front end of the head to make a beak.
Dip the other index finger in green paint and stamp down as a dot to create the duck’s eye.
Leave the painting to dry in a well-ventilated area and once fully dried add a dot to the eye with your permanent marker to define the pupil.
