Holidays Thumbprint Art


I've been trying to include my little one in a few projects lately...she is so darn sweet and helpful, and is so proud when she gets to craft with me.
I saw this cool thumbprint art at Kristy Makes, and I thought it was adorable.
It got me to thinking that it would be fun to have a collage of thumbprint art representing a bunch of holidays!

So, I typed up the names of a few different holidays in a word document, and printed it out onto cardstock.  My daughter and I practiced on scraps of paper, deciding what pictures would go best with each holiday.
Then, she stamped her finger, and I added the pen lines.

If we didnt have ink pads in the correct color, we just used magic markers - and they worked great!  Just be sure to have a baby wipe or paper towel on hand to clean your finger after each color.



I'll probably put it in her room, or hang it on the fridge for a while - I just love it!
These would also make pretty dang cute cards!
