Putting their finger on it

If you were going to paint something this big, you would use a paintbrush, right?

The picture these children are looking at wasn't made with a paintbrush. It was made by children just like them. The children who made it used only their hands and their fingers.

As you can imagine, it took a lot of children cooperating to finish the painting. Altogether, there were 1,445 children fingerpainting together. The children were all different ages -- between seven years old and 14 years old.

With so many children helping each other, it didn't take very long to complete the painting. They were finished in just five hours!
