Art from sticky little fingers
If you have little ones at home this project is inexpensive, fun, and fast. We mothers are sentimental, and hand crafted items mean more to us than anything store bought. Or at least for most of us. My hubby will tell you I have a box full of just these sorts of treasures and I can tell you when, where, and why for each creation my kiddos have made me over the years.
When it comes to children’s artwork though everything seems nicer when framed. Have you ever gone to your child’s art show at school and they have the artwork framed and you just have to buy it because it looks so good all framed up and ready for your wall? Fingerprint Artwork is just such a project.
My oldest is 10 and still thought this was a huge blast!
- Assorted Color Ink Pads (Michaels has a basket at the front of their store with .99 cent pads that are the perfect size)
- 1 Piece of nice white textured scrapbooking paper (can also be found in the craft store)
- 1-2 Sharpie markers for outlining those fun designs
- 1 pencil
- 1 matted frame ( I picked these little frames up at Michaels for $5!)
- 2-3 blank white sheets of “practice paper”
- 1 wet towel and one dry towel for each child
