To make a footprint chick, brush yellow and orange paint onto the foot and press the foot gently on the paper. Use marker pens/crayons to draw eye, beak and legs, turning their footprint into a chick.
Have your kids paint one of their hands grey then press their hands on paper. But my daughter wants her elephant red, that's fine for me. I don't limit her imagination. Then let the kids draw eyes, ears, tail and tusks on the elephant using marker pens/crayons. Ta-dah! Here is her handprint red elephant!
