Materials Needed for the I LOVE MUM fingerprint craft

  1. I LOVE MUM template. (Download below)
  2. White Cardstock Paper (Pastel sheets or thicker)
  3. Colored Cardstock Paper
  4. Scissors
  5. Masking Tape
  6. Paint

To get this craft ready, you’ll need to

  1. Print the template on card stock. Printing onto colored ones work best as it contrasts with the white paper that students will be using for the craft.
  2. Get the paint ready for the kids to use by putting it out onto a plate or something they can press their fingers onto.
  3. Stick the letters and heart down using masking tape. Masking tape works best since regular tape will tear out the background paper.
  4. Now begin making finger prints all around the edges of the letters and the heart first. Be sure to fill in all gaps
  5. Continue making fingerprints all around the letters and then begin making more and more away from the letters, scattering them all over the page.
  6. You can use as many colors as you want.IMG_4085 (2)
