Thumbprint Ants Picnic
Print This Tutorial
Small Paper Plate
Washable Ink Pads
First glue down your napkin to the center of the green color cardstock. Set aside for later.
Next grab your white cardstock, paper plate and black craft paint. Squirt some paint on the paper plate.
Have children dip their thumb in the black craft paint, then on the white cardstock, three times in a row to create a body for an ant. Repeat, leaving space between each "ant" body.
Once done, set aside to let it dry a bit.
When it's dry enough, draw on legs to each thumbprint stack, with the black Sharpie and glue on wiggle eyes for the ants to see.
Then use scissors to trim out each cardstock ant piece. It doesn't need to be perfect. Some white around the edges is ok and totally perfect :-)
Finally, to finish off the mixed media picnic craft - glue your finished ant pieces all over the original napkin piece. Add other embellishments you see fit.
Then display proudly for ALL to see!
