These cute animals are literally right at your fingertips when you use this cool fingerprint technique. Using your fingerprints and a pen, the possibilities are endless and you can create an entire zoo full of animals! This is a great beginner project that can get a little messy if you don’t keep an eye on the ink pad. To help keep things under control, make sure the ink is washable and that you have plenty of soap and water on hand!
Things you will need:
- A washable ink pad in the color of your choice
- A pen or fine-tip marker
- A piece of paper or note cards
Steps: Simply press your finger into the ink then press it firmly on your piece of paper. Next, follow the guides below to create the different animals. Try experimenting and see what you can come up with!
Congratulations! You are well on your way to creating a thumbprint zoo! Use your imagination and see how many different animals you can come up with. Have you done this project? Did you do it differently? Please feel free to share your comments and pictures in the comments section!
