Finger painting Dinosaurs

Both my kids love painting but they like to use their paint brushes, they have never been that keen on finger painting.  However I have found with my daughter if I show her how to do an animal with finger painting then she will give it a go.  So to go with our new Dinosaur folder that we finished this week I thought we could try to paint some Dinosaurs.

We started off with just a small circle for the head and a bigger one for the body.

Then we added the legs, the neck and tail and left it to dry for a bit (well you are suppose to do that but my kids just wanted to finish them).

Once it had dries we used a different colour to add some details (for some of the smaller details the kids did use some ear buds).  And yes the kids are painting in their PJ’s (my son was not feeling well).
