Subscribe to Oneindia News

London, Aug 21 (ANI): More than 4,000 children in Belfast have attempted to beat the world record for finger painting.

The previous record was set in Austria two years ago and was 699sq ft smaller than the new gigantic spread.

Two adjudicators approved by Guinness World Records are currently examining the artwork to find if it is a new record.

The latest painting was stitched together at the Belfast zoo carpark to produce a massive 22,496.5sq ft canvas.

Northern Ireland Child Minding Association organized the event to mark its 25th anniversary celebrations.

Sky News quoted association director Bridget Nodder as saying: "We wanted to do something a bit different to celebrate our anniversary."

Belfast Lord Mayor Naomi Long called the effort "a great opportunity for children to get involved in a creative project which is tremendous fun."

The confirmation of the new record will be known in a couple of weeks. (ANI)
