Here is what happens when you let a 3 year old play with ink pads and markers! I had more pics to share with you, but some of my photos didn't download right. My husband recovered what he could. Thank God for him, or I wouldn't have any of the pictures that were on the camera.
The idea was for the children to just put the ink on their thumbs and make animals and other things out of their thumb prints. As you can see, the ink ended up all over my little Stinky Face! But, thankfully, it easily washed off. This is a nice activity that is quick and fun for all ages!
Here is some of G.Q.'s artwork. I don't particularly like what he drew!
