Fingerprint crafts are a great activity for kids. It's creative, tactile, a little messy and a great use of their fine motor skills. Let your littlies create their own fingerprint flower garden using a few simple materials found in most craft boxes.

Tips
Start with a practice sheet to help you and your child get a feeling for how much ink or paint they need on their fingers, how much pressure to apply when fingerprinting and testing out different flower designs.
The thumb and index finger are generally the easiest to use for fingerprint stamping.
Ink pads are easier to use as they do not transfer too much ink to the finger. If using paint you can have a test sheet to do an initial fingerprint which will remove some of the excess paint. Check for ink pads that are washable and use non-toxic ink (available from craft stores).
Use the wet wipes to remove any excess ink from fingers or to clean fingers to change colours. If you are using multiple colours it is easiest to start with your lighter colours, then go darker.

Method

Fingerprint Daisy
Gently touch the tip of your index finger onto the stamp pad. Stamp this finger onto the white paper to form the centre of your daisy.



Fingerprint Flowers


Use the pad of your index finger to stamp the flower petals. Your flower can have between 4- 6 petals depending on the size of your finger. Overlapping your fingerprints is okay, but be careful not to smudge your prints.
Use a marker to draw the stem and leaves.

What other flowers can you create in your garden? How about a fingerprint tree or even some multicolour flowers?
