- White paper
- Yellow and green markers
- Ink pad
Before you begin, you want to use your green marker to draw grass on your white paper. In my case the grass looks like a zig zag. Did I ever mention I am an AMAZING artist? Is there a special font for sarcasm?
Next, add some leaves to the flowers.
Use the yellow marker to make the center of your flower and then number each flower from 1-10.
Provide your child with an ink pad and explain how they will be making petals on the flowers with their fingers. Then have them read the number on each flower and make that number of petals with their finger. So the flower with number 1 would get one petal and so on...
Little C started out great with one fingerprint on the number one flower. See, look how great she is doing.

She was engaged and having fun, so I'd say she got something out of the activity as well.

She was very excited about her rainbow hand prints.
And her rainbow hands.
