I like to make birthday cards for our very close family members with Thomas. I think it makes a little more special and he really enjoys giving something he has made. It really gives him a sense of pride in his achievements.
So for Daddy’s birthday recently, we made this fingerprint card. I thought it looked so cute that we made another for Thomas’ cousin for her birthday. I’m thinking there might be a few more here and there too :-).
What you need:
Goggly eyes (available from craft stores) we used 4mm ones
Black felt tip pen
I used ready made cards that I picked up at the craft store (they also came with envelopes) but you could make your own
Decorative paper (optional)
Litte fingers 🙂
What you do:
Cut cardboard to desired size
Paint children’s finger with paint (I only did one finger at a time)
Get child to make prints on cardboard
Allow to dry
Stick 2 goggly eyes onto each finger print and draw on a party hat. Decorate card as little or as much as you’d like.
Give to someone you love!
Fine motor skills and finger dexterity
