Inspired by last year's Canada Flag t-shirts that we made, I was looking for ideas for something different that could be done using the boys' hand prints. I couldn't find anything I loved... And then it hit me. FIREWORKS! Hand print fireworks! Yep. So we did it.
various colours of fabric paint
patience (haha... lots of this one)
See the tutorial here for instruction.
I did each colour separately and washed hands in between. It was easy with the older boys, a little more tricky with the 14 month old. Somehow I managed to get his done without any crying or paint-eating.
The most important trick to these is getting the kiddos to spread their hands wide. I overlapped the prints to get a kind of firework-y feel. Next time, I would get different colours... the primary colours are OK, but I think they would have been nicer with some teals and limes.
