You don’t have to be an artist to have fun with this activity. Create fingerprint people for fun or decorate gift tags with them to create some functional art.

You will need:

  • Paper or cardboard for gift tags
  • An ink pad used for stamps (a kiddie’s one with different colours works well) OR just plain disc paints in a box
  • A black thin marker or khoki pen
  • Crayons

What to do:

  • Practice on scrap paper before decorating gift tags
  • Press your finger onto the stamp pad or the wet disc paint
  • Now press it firmly onto the paper. Voila, you have created a fingerprint
  • Now allow the ink/paint to dry for a few minutes
  • Then take your pen and add legs, arms, eyes, nose, mouth, hair, glasses etc. See pictures for some ideas
