    1. Gather your materials. You’ll need finger paint (or you can make your own by mixing cornstarch, water, and food coloring), paper or canvas, and a surface to work on (like a table or tray).

    2. Prepare your work surface. Cover the table or tray with paper or a plastic tablecloth to protect it from the paint.

    3. Squeeze or scoop out the finger paint colors you want to use onto a plate or palette.

    4. Start painting with your fingers! Dip your fingers into the paint and use them to make marks, swirls, and patterns on the paper or canvas.

    5. Experiment with different hand and finger motions – try swiping, tapping, smearing, etc. to create different textures and effects.

    6. Feel free to mix and blend the colors together directly on the paper using your fingers.

    7. Let your creativity flow and have fun! Finger painting is a very open-ended, tactile art form.

    8. When finished, let the painting dry completely before displaying or framing it.
