How to Make Thumb Print Art
Thumbprint art is an easy way to help your kids stretch their imaginations and utilize their creativity. It’s a great activity to experiment with when crayons and paints become a little boring.
Step 1:All you need to get started are colorful ink pads, paper and a pen. Watercolor paper is especially effective at absorbing the ink.
Step 2:Place your thumb face down onto an ink pad and gently rock it from side to side to ensure full ink coverage.
Step 3:Place your thumb on the paper and press down firmly.
Step 4:Use a pen to turn your thumbprints into animals and other objects. Add legs and a face to create a caterpillar, for example.
Step 5:With a little creativity, the sky is the limit to what you can make. Animals, vehicles and landscapes are all popular choices. Expand your thumb art with additional details, like the caterpillar’s setting of a tree and a cloud-filled sky.
