One of Emma’s favorite things to do when she was younger was to make fingerprint art. She would gather my stack of scrapbooking ink pads and a pile of paper. And, she would go to town!
One day at the library, we discovered a tool to make her art even more fun. Ed Emberley books! Oh, my! The things he makes with just fingerprints and a thin black pen.
Upon further searching, we found even more fingerprint art books. Take a look!

Then, check out some of the fun Klutz books that even come with their own mini stamp pads. A few I found include Fingerprint Fabulous: Create Sweet & Sparkly Thumbprint Art, Star Wars Thumb Doodles, Draw Thumb Animals and The Most Amazing Thumb Doodles Book in the History of the Civilized World.
Or, try one of these fun finger printing art sets. Your child makes a fingerprint. Then, they can use the included stamps to add details.
