Fingerprint Art Fun for Kids


Fingerprint art is fun and easy for kids!

Have your kids tried making fingerprint art? This fun activity is really easy and entertaining for kids! All you need is your hand, a stamp pad (we recommend a washable stamp pad), a pen, and your imagination! My kids have been making fingerprint art for years now, and I always enjoy seeing what they come up with!

You could also get this finger printing art set, which includes rubber stamps that can be used to add faces and features. The ink, however, does not appear to be washable.

Fingerprint art is a great way to get kids thinking creatively

I feel like fingerprint art is a great way to get kids thinking creatively in a low-stress way. My kids seem to really enjoy playing with feelings, situations, and emotions with their fingerprint guys. I particularly like the guy trying to outrun a rain shower in the photo above!
