Many of you I know teach in themes so you could use the finger paint as a center and have your students make pictures of dinosaurs, insects, the ocean life, plants, or anything else you are learning about. It would also be fun to practice letters, sight words, and numbers!
It may also be fun to have 1st grade or even 2nd graders make the finger paint other than the warming it up, which you can do! You could then have them write the step by step directions on how to make it! Feel free to share your ideas on using finger paint below!
