- Tape (thick shipping tape)
- Washable kids paint

- Begin by cutting off a large piece of paper from the paper roll (about 12″ x 14″). A piece of white card stock will work too.
- Trace both of your hands on the paper using the permanent marker. You can either trace your hands or your child’s hands.
- Now, tape the paper to the table. Make sure to tape all of the paper and sides securely to create a laminated top.

Let the little ones paint the nails using the washable kids paint and a paintbrush. Wipe with a damp paper towel to do it all over again!
