Fingerprint Art

Ed Emberley - Fingerprint Drawing Book
Ed Emberley - Great Thumbprint Drawing Book

Stamp Ink - Rubber Stampede
Ed Emberley Inspired Art Project

Ed Emberley has an excellent series of art books for kids of all ages. These books use fingerprints and thumbprints to create pictures. I did this art project with my preschoolers and with my teenagers. Both groups enjoyed the project and both were very creative. I found these excellent ink pads that are pictured above. They are small which is perfect for fingerprints. This way there are lots of colors to choose from. Just a word to the wise keep a package of diaper wipes or hand wipes close by, this way the kids don't have to leave the table to wash their hands after each color. This type of art allows for so much creativity and allows the artist to be as detailed or simplistic as they choose. I had some kids place finger prints all over the page and then they went back and turned them into different animals, people, objects, etc. Other kids decided what type of picture they wanted to create and then carefully placed each fingerprint.
