Ant Art Project For KidsHere is a fun and hands-on way to solidify the teaching of an ants body. Children will use their own fingers to create the three segments that make up an ant. This ant craft makes for a great place to display any poetry or learning statements that children have written about ants.

Recommended Grade Level: PreK-1

Supplies Needed:

brown construction paper or a large brown paper bag cut in the shape of an ant hill

finger paint in black, brown or red

brushes

marker in black, brown or red

Directions:

Provide students with the cut out ant hill. Demonstrate how students are to choose a color of paint and then brush some on the first segement of their index finger. They will then use that finger to make a fingerprint on the ant hill. Three fingerprints in a row should be added to form one ant. The child will continue to print ants until he/she is done. Once dry, the student will use a marker in a color that matches the paint to form the legs of each ant.
