Fingerprints Art

I like simple art ideas for kids. Those that require little preparation and materials, can engage kids and allow room for them to be creative. Recently, I found a wonderful art idea on pinterest… Fingerprints Art!

These are all the materials you need:

  • Watercolour
  • Black felt pen / Black markers

Instead of watercolour, you can also use ink pads of various colours. I prefer watercolour for my kids as it won’t leave stains on their little fingers!

All you need to do is to use your fingers to make fingerprints onto a piece of white paper. Once you’re done making fingerprints of various colours, use a felt tip pen to draw in the details and you’re done!

To give you some ideas, here are some lovely fingerprints art:

1. Fingerprints Bugs

2. Fingerprints Characters

Why not give it a go, it’s a fun activity for kids and a great fine motor skills activity for toddlers and preschoolers.
