Handprint Campfire with a Song
This is a perfect example of what happens when you put too much paint on the hand (see orange color)~ when you press down to make the handprint, it oozes out in between the fingers! Normally I would redo the handprint, however, for this project it actually looks okay- yay! To make the Handprint Campfire (bonfire), paint the fingertips yellow, the bottom of the palm red, and the rest of the hand orange. I think it would look good with 3 different shades of orange too. I painted 2 logs with a medium brown color and then used a darker brown to add depth by streaking in some lines and painting an end of each log (the circle).
I found some cute campfire songs on the Preschool Education website. I wrote the lyrics to the Going Camping Song and placed it next to the fiery handprint. It's sung to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot- cute!
