With this technique, your child can use her finger as a paintbrush, tracing shapes and shades to create impressive copies of her favorite photos.

How to make it

  1. When picking a photo, stick with a large image, such as a magazine ad or a photocopy of a school portrait. Lay a sheet of tracing paper on the photo and take a minute to study the darker shaded areas, such as eyebrows, cheeks, a jawline or hair.

  2. Re-create the facial features on the tracing paper by dipping a fingertip in tempera paint and covering the shaded areas with a series of fingerprints. Start with shapes in the center of the photo and work outward. Back the finished artwork with a sheet of white paper.
