We made these cute and patriotic handprint eagles a couple of years ago for our fourth of July t-shirts. Independence Day is over for this year, but it's still July, and I thought that I would make this with the youngest member of our family, but we'll be using a small canvas instead of a t-shirt to make a fun piece of art to hang up on the wall.
canvas - size of your choosing
paint - brown, white, yellow, black, and red or blue for the background
Pretty easy to see how to do this. Paint the canvas with blue or red paint to make the background. After that dries, use the side of your child's fist to make the eagle's head with white paint. Use the brown paint to make handprints underneath to create the wings. Three fingers dipped in white paint will make the tail feathers. The beak can be made by painting a small part of the pinky finger, and the eye with black paint and a fingerprint. There you go!
