Playing with colours is fun for all, especially children. And the joy doubles if you can draw something meaningful and fun, like animals but using only your thumb. Using thumb painting to draw animals is a fun way for children to use their creativity and imagination.
Children will have a great deal of fun using thumb painting to draw animals by following this step-by-step guide. Before you start, do not forget to wash your hand thoroughly and dry them out with a clean towel.
Once your child finishes drawing animals, ask them to add relevant things around them, such as trees, stones, rivers, etc. You can get creative further by guiding your child to use other fingers on their hand to paint the trees, stones and more. It will provide some frame of reference to the animals your child has drawn on the paper.
You could make the thumb painting activity even more enjoyable by challenging them to create drawings of other kinds of animals using only their thumbs. It will propel their creativity and will also motivate them to learn more about animals.
