Thumbprint Flowers

ages 3-6


Paint, paper or pottery

Activity Detail

This is a great craft for a grandparent gift or a class project. Begin by gathering several colors of paint. Then take each child's thumb, press it lightly into the paint, and then press it onto the paper or object. This will be the center of the flower. Then, using a different color of paint, press thumbprints around the first one, creating flower petals. Make one flower for each child -- or several from one child. This can be done on paper for fun or a piece of pottery to have forever.

This activity is a good enough idea as far as creating a keepsake for a grandparent or other relative, but I am not sure how original it is. It is also not engaging enough to hold the attention of an older child (I have a 5-year old for too long).

This can be done very cute- my boys and I made a plate (pottery) for my husband for Father's Day. We used the boys' thumb prints and then I made little "animals" out of them and then in the center we wrote "DADDY'S PLATE" and this is his dinner plate everynight! The boys love seeing their Daddy eat on his plate that we all made for him!
