When we came home we used markers, stickers, crayons, colored chalk (the most vibrant) and water colors to decorate them. We made plenty of copies, so were able to try so many different ideas and techniques.
We made maps of our hands.
We decorated our hands.
And we turned our hands into landscapes.
This is such a great activity, and the variations are limitless. We are still experimenting and thinking up new ideas.
Tomorrow, I will share our self portraits that we did using this technique.
Have you done this with your kids? What was the experience like? Did you have a favorite art material?
