Light Up my Life Craft

Everyone loves a little love note ~ having the crew create one by hand for mom and dad is always a hit specially this fun one where they get to make little fingerprints! 

What You Need
  • Washable Ink pads in various colors (tempera paint would work)
  • Fine Marker
  • Cardstock weight paper or construction paper in white and a Christmas color of choice
  • Computer and printer or a 'neat writer'
What You Do
  •  If you are not a neat writer yourself you can create a 'sentiment' for your project in WORD and print them out for the children on an 8.5x11 paper and than cut to size for your card front. We did 8 x 5 size for our white for our card front and insert and than folded a full size card stock for our base of the card.
  • Have children ink up their finger with color and make a collage of finger prints around their paper.
  • Wash fingers well when finished ~ great reason to do some water play to help soak off the evidence if it is going to be a surprise card!
  • If using tempera paint let the finger prints dry. When dry revist your project to draw lines to connect the fingerprints into sentiments
  • Children can write a personal message inside or draw a picture for loved one!

Like hand print crafts fingerprint art is always a fun and appreciated keepsake for loved ones that the children love to make!

Have an amazing day!

Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much
