DIY Kids Fingerprint Art

With some ink pads, a pencil and your favorite set of little fingers, you can make some fun fingerprint art that will be just as fun to make as it is to look at! Kids will love this DIY activity and parents are likely to join in, too!


  • Ink pads (washable is preffered!)
  • Paper (I used cardstock)
  • Pen or pencil
  • LIttle hands
  • Damp paper towel



Step 1: Make sure their fingers are clean before you begin stamping. Then press their finger(s) into the ink pad. IMG_5179

Step 2: Then help them place their newly inked finger onto the paper. Really let them go to town! The more fingerprints there are, the more creatures they can create!


Step 3: Wait a few seconds for the ink to dry, then let them draw on their designs, faces, etc. It’s so much fun to watch!


And that’s it! Happy stamping!
