1.First, CLICK HERE to download and print the template; then cut out the dreidel shape.
2.Apply a small amount of glue using the glue stick to the back of the dreidel shape and stick it onto your canvas.
3.Now, squeeze out a small amount of your different paints onto a paper plate (or paint palette).
4.Dip your finger into one of the paints and press it onto the canvas. Repeat all over your canvas in different areas. If you start with the blue, continue to add blue fingerprints all over the canvas. Let the paint dry for a while before switching to silver or gold or even a lighter blue (blue mixed with white). Cover your entire canvas, especially around the dreidel pattern, with painted fingerprints.
TIP: Be sure to clean your finger before changing paints.
5.Carefully remove the dreidel pattern and let the paint dry.
6.Once the paint is dry, you outline the dreidel shape with a black marker.
