Finger Painting Festive Lights

Finger Painting Festive Light - simple and fun Christmas Activity by Learning 4 Kids

Looking for a super easy Christmas or Festive painting activity for the kids to do? Finger Painting Festive Lights is really simple to set up and fun to make.

Children can create their own patterns of coloured lights or finger paint the festive lights onto a card to give to someone at Christmas time.

I think the Finger Painting Festive Lights would also look great as homemade gift wrap/wrapping paper!

What you will need?

Some Ideas:

  • Encourage children to create their very own lines using the permanent makers. Some children may like to create swirls, straight lines, wavy lines or squiggly lines. You can also draw lines from corner to corner, side to side or up and down. The ideas for creativity are endless.
  • Children place one finger/thumb for each colour paint and press the paint along the line to form or imitate a festive light. You can press the painted lights directly on top of the lines or have them hanging underneath the lines, slightly touching the black line.
  • Create patterns using the different colours provided, such as red, blue, green, red, blue and green again.
  • Children can finger paint the festive lights into a card to give to someone at Christmas time or make some colourful homemade gift wrap.
