What kid wouldn’t love to find out that there are frogs in the tips of their fingers? All they need is a piece of paper, some ink and their imagination to discover their little froggy friends.

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

Sitting Frog
Gently touch the pad of your index finger or thumb onto the stamp pad or colour with a marker. Stamp this finger sideways onto the white paper to form the body of your frog.



Frogs, Fingerprints

Stamp another fingerprint on top of the first fingerprint to form the head of the frog.
Allow the fingerprints to dry (this may take longer if using paint).
Use a fine tip black marker to draw the frogs eyes, face and arms/legs.
