Fingerprint Art

Lately, at home, our kids use their fingers only to tap, slide, pinch, and swipe digital devices. So we decided it was time for us to do something about it.
 
This activity is about getting your kids’ little fingers dipped in paint and creating wonderful things with them.
 
We know it may get a little messy, but it is important to teach our kids to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty if the want to make things happen.
 

Download and print these covers and get going!
