Print­ing a fly­ing in­sect pic­ture

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES -

USE your own hand and foot­prints to cre­ate in­sect art. Hand and foot­prints make great wings for but­ter­flies and drag­on­flies. You will need: white card; acrylic paints; paint brush; scis­sors; pop­si­cle stick; goo­gly eyes; pipe cleaner; glue; magnet How to cre­ate: Paint the palm of your hand or sole of your foot with paint. Use more than one colour. Press your hand or foot firmly down onto the card to make a print. You will need to make two to four de­pend­ing on the num­ber of wings needed. Af­ter the paint dries, cut out the hand­prints/foot­prints. Glue on the goo­gly eyes and hand/foot prints. Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Glue each half onto the back of the pop­si­cle stick and curl the ends of the pipe cleaner to make an­tenna. Glue a magnet onto the back of the stick so you can place your art­work on the fridge.
