We made this body tracing and splatter painting as part of our Holi celebrations.body tracing in school and then painting it at home we had done last time. Also, this would be just like painting herself with colors which is what we do on holi, paint ourselves and friends with bright colors.
I pulled off some paper from her easel and taped two long pieces together along the back to make the paper big enough. She laid down on the paper and i traced her outline with a black marker(use a crayon so that it does not mark dress). She giggled when i traced her ticklish feet. Then she wanted to cut it out just like we had done last time. I allowed her to go ahead (big mistake.. should have let her cut after painting)
- Will do it with a couple of her friends. I think all the kids painted silhouettes together will look great.
- Do it on poster board taped together so it is more firm.
- Cutting the outline only after painting.
