Fingerprint critters use very few supplies!

Help your child make cute pictures using their fingerprints and markers!



          Colorful ink pads, or washable markers.

          Cute little fingers!

How to proceed:

          Using different fingers to determine the size of your critter, either press them into the ink pad or use a marker to color the tips of the finger.

          Press your colored finger onto the paper and press firmly, don’t drag.

          Once you have made your critter’s body, use a fine point marker to make a face, legs, whiskers, wings or tail.

These works of art can be made into a bookmark, a greeting card, or just hang it on the fridge!
