It took a few years of doing this to perfect it and do it the most efficient way. I had been doing a three step process with each hand and was doing two hands for every child! Way too much.

First we the thumb, index, and “tall man”, and pinky, red and leave ring finger unpainted. Don’t paint the center of the palm but paint around the perimeter. Print that on the paper, fingers pointing down. Next, directly above that print paint the fingers blue and print the hair.
Continue with this across your length of paper until every child has a turn. When they’re dry add the features with a sharpie. We wrote “Thing 1, Thing 2, Thing 3, Thing 4…up to 17! Too cute.
