- Large construction paper
What You Do:
Each student can choose a piece of construction paper for the background.
Have students come up one at a time, to gently dip their fingers in the yellow tempera paint.

They can clean their fingers in the wash tub.
Once the paint has can then decorate their fingerprints to look like a new spring chick.
