Make Your Own Fingerprint Charms: a charming art activity for kids

We have a thing for fingerprint, handprint, and footprint art projects. Little kid fingerprints and handprints are just so cute and art projects made with prints look super adorable hanging on the wall. That’s why we like it. The kids like it because it’s a fun sensory activity for them and they love the way the fingerprint charms look when they’re done.

Kids like to make their own gifts for people and don’t we all enjoy the thought of a homemade gift? These  Fingerprint charms can be made into necklaces, charm bracelets, ornaments or key chains. Our kids had so much fun making these for other people and they learned a lot about gift giving while they practiced their fine motor skills. It is an absolutely charming activity.
