Working with fingerprints was too much fun to stop after just one project. Get ready to have some colourfully stained fingertips for a few days, as we delve into one of those classic projects – fingerprint people.
- ink pads – various colours
- rubber stamps (optional)
- white paper
- fine tip markers
1. Have children fill some white paper with their fingerprints. They’ll notice that even after washing with soap and water, fingers will remain stained, but only for about a day.
2. Using fine tip markers, add features to the fingerprints to create little characters. It’s amazing how little it takes to create a whole lot of personality. And since the ink pads are out, rubber stamps are a great way to add some detail to the background.
