A collection of fun activities for little hands!

Fingerprint Flowers

Spring has finally sprung!!  With spring comes Mother’s Day so we are beginning to get ready.  We decided to create our cards today and used our fingers to make a beautiful keepsake.  All you need are:

Card stock

Washable ink pads (make sure they are washable or you will have stained little fingers!!)

Markers

Little fingers!!

Give each child a piece of card stock and place the markers and ink pads in the center where everyone can share them.  I demonstrated a few different ways to use fingerprints to create flowers and set them to it.  When they’ve created their flower they can then use the markers to add stems, leaves and a Mother’s Day message.  Enjoy!!
