Finger Paint Football Craft

It’s nearly Fall and football is here! I actually went to my first NFL game last year. My husband took me to NYC to see our local team play in my favorite city. We took a long weekend trip and it was so much fun. But, you don’t have to see a pro football game to make this cute little finger paint football craft with your little quarterbacks.

Let’s get started on this cute finger paint football craft! Firstly, gather all of your supplies. This will make crafting a lot easier. I was able to gather all of the supplies from from our craft and sports closet.

First, cut out a football shape from cardstock paper. Cut out one for each person that is making a finger paint football craft. 

Then, squeeze a small amount of paint on to a paper plate. 

Finally, have your little ones dip their finger into the paint and stamp it on to the football. 

Once the football is covered in dry paint, use the cloth tape or laces to add the laces to the football. I think tape is much easier to use than laces, but either one will look great. Simply cut the tape or laces and stick onto the football. You will need one long piece and several short pieces.
