Procedure

Step 1: Starting With A Sheet Of Paper

Starting With A Sheet Of Paper-How to make a handprint plant pot with paints

Take a white sheet of paper and cut a circle out of it and place it on the table. Now, take a paintbrush and dip it in some green paint. Finally, teaming with your toddler, paint his right hand with this paintbrush. The entire palm and the fingers need to be green before stamping them in the middle of the sheet. Press down on his hand gently to make the imprint more prominent. See the picture below for reference.

Now, we will be using a cardboard piece as a paintbrush. Make sure that the cardboard piece has a flat and even surfaced end. Pour some brown paint on this flat end as shown in the picture below.

Step 4: Painting With The Cardboard Piece

Step 5: Painting More Brown Strokes

Collect some more brown paint on the cardboard end and paint two vertical strokes below the horizontal one. These strokes need to be slightly slanted. Level the bottom of these lines to give it the shape of the pot. See the picture below for reference.

Step 6: Making Some Fingerprints On The Sheet

Repeat the process using yellow, blue, and brown paint and make similar imprints throughout the spaces between the fingers. The imprints should fill the empty spaces, making the picture look more fuller. See the picture below for reference.

Step 8: Using Some Maroon Paint To Fill In More Color

Take some maroon paint onto your index finger and make more imprints in the spaces between the fingers. This will add some more vibrant color to the painting. Now, stamp some imprints using the same maroon color at the bottom of the white sheet on both sides of the pot as shown in the picture below.

Finally Stamping Some Final Imprints
