DLTK's Crafts for Kids
mother's day fingerprint cardMother's Day Fingerprint Cards

This simple crafted card uses fingerprints (or cotton swabs) and paint to create a shape for the front of a Mother's Day card.  I've also provided optional templates with a title, poem and "about mom" questionaire to complete your card.

You can use the templates I've provided (I have quite a few different options) or let the children create their own.  Making up their own pattern is suitable for older children... kids younger than grade school usually need the guidance from the templates and often even grade school kids appreciate the inspiration.

You can also paste a photograph or print a message inside many of the patterns (for example, the heart or the sunshine).
