What You Do:
- Help your child pour a small amount of white paint onto a plate.

- When she's confident with her handprint stamps, have her carefully make two stamps in the center of the blue paper. Each handprint's fingers should be pointed out -- just like angel wings.

- Let her cut a circle from the pink construction paper to be her angel's head.
