Making the Dandelion

Pour your white paint onto the paper plate, and start making finger prints. Guide your child if needed to group their fingerprints into a circle area near the top of the canvas.

How Kids Can Make the Dandelion Art Print.

Make a large circle of fingerprints, and a few that are off to one side, as if they are blowing away. An odd number usually looks best so we've added three dots blowing across the top of the print.

Group your fingerprints in a circle

Once you've made all your dots, let the kids wash their hands.

Painting the Stems and Grass

Depending on their age, they can help paint in the stem and the grass. Use a loose touch to add the grass on the bottom of the canvas in little tufts as shown. The dandelion stem will be a bolder, thicker stroke.

Paint the stems and grass

Add stems to the bottom of any fingerprints seeds that are blowing away. Use your dark paint to create a small line from each. The line should be thick at the bottom, and get thinner as it gets closer to the top.

Make the floating dandelion seeds

Allow your new dandelion fingerprint art to fully dry before hanging or framing the print.
