*If your little artist is a messy painter make sure to protect your surfaces and them!

Start by drawing a curved line over the cards. Along the line draw small squares or triangles. Ensure there is some space between each.

Dip your little ones finger into the paint and place onto the card where you've drawn the squares or triangles.
