#2. Fingerprint Crafts

by Barbara J. Feldman

Fingerprint Crafts Printable (** for premium members only)

The use of fingerprints as a form of identification dates back to Babylon, ancient Rome and China’s Tang Dynasty. The first modern use of fingerprints was recorded on July 28, 1868 in colonial India by a British magistrate. Today’s website roundup focuses not on history, however, but on using fingerprints and hand prints in toddler craft projects.

Activity Village: Handprint Crafts
“Handprint crafts are some of our favourite activities because you enjoy the fun of the craft and create a snapshot in time of your children too – look back over your child’s previous artwork and be amazed at how quickly they have grown!” Crafts are organized into seasons, scroll down to find summer ideas which include sunflowers, strawberries, bumble bees and butterflies.

C.R.A.F.T.: 59 Handprint Art Ideas for Kids
Creating Really Awesome Free Things (C.R.A.F.T.) links to fifty-nine art projects all over the Web. About half are animals (monkey, sheep, horse, elephant, etc.) followed by holiday themes and a miscellaneous hand print category titled Other Fun Things. “Psst,” they suggest, “if you like this list, you’ll love the list of 67 paper plate crafts for kids!”

DLTK Kids: Handprint, Fingerprint and Footprint Crafts
DLTK hosts over sixty crafts for little hands and feet. They are not well organized, so just scroll the list for something that catches your eye. Some of these projects include printable poems, or holiday cards, and there is a whole page devoted just to fingerprint characters such as caterpillars and camels. You’ll find it by following the Fingerprint Crafts link (“directions for making many different fingerprint characters.”) Reader Carmela suggests that using inked stamp pads ” works great and is less messy than paint!”

#6. Quote of the Week

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” ~~ Oprah Winfrey ~~( January 29, 1954) American talk show host, producer.
