Fingerprint Clover Art

 To generate some excitement in our house for St. Patrick's Day, I suggested to my daughter that we make some fingerprint clovers. I demonstrated to her how to make a four leaf clover with making four thumb prints in a clover shape. She watched and then started to work on her own creation.

She made three four leaf clovers, drew stems and then thought her art project needed more thumbprint images including butterflies, ladybugs, a dragon fly, a flower, the sun and some clouds. All of these ideas were hers. I just loved watching her go with the idea of making objects out of finger prints.
This is her finished project. It really makes me wish spring was really here, but it will be soon. Other than a marker and a colored pencil, everything else she made using Melissa & Doug Jumbo Multi-Color Stamp Pad.

Of course, we did this activity (& I wrote it up) just before the warm weather was upon us. So that comment about wishing for spring is from before.
