Steps for making hand print and footprint art with kids

Make sure the kids washes their hand and put on an apron. Have sufficient colours near the table. Ask the kid to place their hands/foot slowly in the paint plate which has paints diluted with water. Ask the kid to place the painted hand carefully in chart and let them be for few more seconds. Remove their hands and immediately wash it off. Finally we can highlight the animals face using sketch pens.
