Fingerprint Bug and Flower Vase

I am always on the lookout for cute craft ideas that I can do with children.  This fingerprint bug flower vase fit the bill.  My neighbor gave me the idea of recycling bottles into vases.

The vases turned out extremely cute!  Since we didn’t have to purchase a container and I had the paints, the budget thanked me too.

Materials
Glass Jars (Recycle just about anything)
Frosted Clear Coat Spray Paint
Acrylic Paints
Black Sharpie Markers

Directions
1.) Spray your glass container with the frosted clear coat spray. Let the jar dry completely.

2.) Using acrylic paint, dip the child’s fingertips into the paint. The fingerprints become the bodies of bugs and animals.

3.) Use acrylic paint to paint flowers, grass, clouds or additional accents on bugs.

4.) Use black Sharpie to add eyes, legs and additional accents on bugs.

This is an enjoyable project that will allow the children to be creative.  Enjoy watching them create masterpieces!
