Here is a fantastic finger painting craft activity – Make your own Fingerpaint Strawberries. Have fun making these fruity creations!

Thanks to Meredith, from NY, sent in this great idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

We made fingerprint strawberries. First I cut out a large strawberry and stem/leaves from construction paper. Older kids could probably do this themselves.

My toddler glued these two pieces together on his own. Have your child use brown or black finger paint (washable craft paint) to add seeds or to make it more challenging for an older child have them make more realistic seeds with a toothpick.

This was super easy, and everything went smoothly. I did cut the paper out when the kids were asleep though LOL.

Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…

My name is Meredith. I am a Mom of 3 from NY, USA. My kids are 9, 3 and 10 months.

How are you finding being housebound so far?

We are lucky to have outdoor areas available to us so we don’t feel housebound. We are also homeschoolers before the pandemic so we are used to learning at home and being home at least 50% of the time anyway.

Do you have any tips for other parents?

Plan activities ahead of time! It is so nice to have things mostly prepped and ready to go so I’m not scrambling first thing in the morning. Premade kits are also a great idea if you don’t have a lot of time to prep.
