How To Create This Ladybird Handprint Art Project

Make sure they keep their hand open to avoid smearing the paint.

Press your child’s hand down firmly onto the canvas towards the bottom.

Help your child gently lift their hand off the canvas to avoid smearing the paint.

Allow the handprint to dry completely.

Paint a black head on top of the red handprint.

Add eyes and antenna.

Paint a line down the ladybug.

Dip your child’s fingertip into black paint and add spots to the ladybug. Paint the rest of the canvas a light blue.

Allow the paint to dry completely.
