We love doing art projects. Now that Millie isn’t going to Mother’s Day Out since quarantine I’ve been trying to do art most days even if it is watercolors on a coloring book. With Cinco de Mayo in a few days I thought this was a fun project! It is so simple but turns out so cute!
We did mommy and me handprints. You can do just their handprint, just kids, just yours, whatever you want! I thought doing a family one would be fun too!
All you need is paper- card stock is better but not necessary – green paint, a color for the flowers paint, and a Sharpie! That is it!
Start by putting some paint on a paper plate – easy clean up. Press your hand into the paint and place it gently on the paper. If you have a smaller child they will need a lot of help with this!
Next use fingers to make the extra green marks on the cactus. Then pick a flower color and use your fingerprints to make flowers using 3 dots.
You will need to let it dry. Once it is dry use your sharpie and make some cactus needles! Simple as that!
Purple, Pink, Yellow, or blue paint
