Fingerprint Bunnies and Chicks!!!!

 Easter gifts

Thumbprint drawing books!

So….
Long story short – today I’m sharing how to create the cutest little bunnies from finger and thumbprints, á la  Ed Emberley!
Materials Needed:
Stamp Ink pads in desired colors
(I used pink and yellow)
Paper or card stock
Marker or pen for details
Fingers and Thumbs
(You may also want to have some wipes handy!)

First, make sure your hands are clean…this may seem silly since you’re going to be getting ink all over them, but trust me…you don’t want to start this project with sticky fingers!  (Also…remember to use a different finger for each color you use!)

Next, carefully press your finger or thumb onto the ink pad.

Then press the finger or thumb onto the paper.

Now comes the fun part!  Using simple lines and curves add:
Ears & eyes

A nose and whiskers

Paws and tail

Ta-Dah!!
And for a chicks:

Eyes and beaks

Wings and legs

Here’s a little finished composition!

This is a FANTASTIC activity for kids of all ages!  They make super cute name tags or place cards, too!!
