Thumbprint Images and Drawings Instead of buying stamps, why not have children use thumbprints to make pictures? With a few stamp pads in different colors, children will be on their way to creating original artwork.
Depending on the age of the children, you may need to help them with drawing various images and faces. You can even turn their thumbprint art into wall hangings, greeting cards, and wrapping paper.
Tape Snowflake Art Pick up a pack of small to medium sized canvases and a small assortment of blue and white paint at the local craft store.
