No Mess added 9-9-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: Finger-paint paper or wax paper, paint, plastic wrap, tape, white paper

Directions: Do no-mess finger-painting. Put out finger-paint paper  or wax paper, and tape to the table. Drop on a few blobs of thick tempera paint or finger-paint. Cover the paint with a sheet of plastic wrap, and tape down the  edges. Encourage the children to move the colors around with their hands to mix. When they're done, take off the plastic wrap, and invite the children to press sheets of white paper over the wet paint to make prints.
