Get ready to get messy! This delightful book is packed with ideas taking simple painted finger prints and making them into lots of lovely pictures. There are many very basic ideas that toddlers will love to try and more complex ones to challenge adults, too! This colourful book is full of inspirational ideas, step by step instructions and pictures from finger prints. The equipment needed, basic guidance and tips are all there at the beginning but then the fun can start as you don’t need to be able to read to follow the picture illustrations and examples.
Parents and teachers alike will probably love this for giving lots of ideas for youngsters to try out. I saw lots of suggestions that I could make into colourful displays, enabling all pupils in a class to contribute and be proud of their work. So, if you feel like having a fun, messy but really artistic time, check out this book and get some paper, pencils, felts, washable paints, wear clothing you don’t mind getting paint splattered or aprons to protect yourself and have a go!
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
