Thumbprint art has long been a favorite of ours. It is another great craft that requires very few supplies(paper, markers, stamp pad), but the possibilities are almost endless, which means keeping kids creating for hours. If you don’t have much experience with thumbprint art we recommend “Ed Emberley’s Great Thumbprint Drawing Book”. It is full of ideas and instructions sure to inspire some wonderful thumbprint pictures.
This Easter we thought making thumbprint chick place cards would be a great way to get the whole family involved in setting the Easter table.
We had our little ones stamp their thumbs on a white piece of paper, added the simple beaks, eyes & feet then cut them out and attached them to our place cards. Little ones will love stamping their thumbs even if they cannot draw the faces and older kids will love doing both. As you can see from the picture above you can really get creative making eggs, bunnies, or even hatching eggs.
