In the Sunshine room we have been very busy doing lots of lovely Christmas art.
Santa Claus – we painted our hands and printed Santa’s face on paper, and then used our fingerprints to make his eyes. Our fingers are white for his beard, our thumbs and the heels of our hands are red for his hat and our palms are salmon coloured for his face.
Christmas trees – we used circle printing to make one of our Christmas trees and used our fingerprints for lights of different colours. For the other tree we used a fork to paint the tree and then glued pom poms onto it.
Christmas wreaths – we dipped dish brushes in green paint and used them to print the wreaths. We used our fingerprints dipped in red paint to print berries.
Rudolph – we used two handprints to make Rudolph’s head and body. We glued on a red pom pom for his nose and Christmassy ribbon for his collar.
Christmas cards – we used a stencil of a Christmas tree and printed our fingerprints all around it.
