We started out with a bit of green paint, and a bit of brown. I penciled a large triangle for the body of the tree, and a small rectangle, for its trunk. These were Ephraim's guidelines for fingerprinting.
Print, print, print!
He did a bit of smearing on the left there, explaining that it worked faster. He's right. ;)
Once the paint dried, I helped him draw a star on a piece of yellow construction paper. We cut it out and glued it atop the tree.
We then added a zillion dots of glue...
He ended up glittering the whole star because he liked that better. :)
He then signed his artwork and added the year. I wrote it on the paper to the right for him to copy. After he wrote it, he said, "There's my address!" Funny kid. :)
Once it's totally dry, it will replace the framed fingerprint fall tree!
Merry Christmas from the artist himself! I have a couple of other keepsake Christmas crafts that I am working on with him. They'll be grandma gifts. I'll also show you last year's grandma gifts!
Hope your Christmas crafting is merry and bright!
