We read the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar today and then did this activity to tie in with the book. It is no secret that we are an art loving family. There are many wonderful reasons why finger painting is so beneficial for kids (a must read!)
We are also constantly doing fun finger painting activities which you can find on my instagram page.
To tie into the The Very Hungry Caterpillar we did a themed art activity. In the book the caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly.
If you would prefer to try your hand at making them at home here is a wonderful homemade finger paint recipe.

Pictures of messy hands are always my favorites! I especially love the happy smiles and giggles behind the colorful hands.
When the paintings were dry I cut the butterflies out and hung them up in the house.
