Sugar Aunts: Turtle Thumbprint Art

Turtle Thumbprint Art

We have a love for print crafts.  From creating with handprints to pipe cleaners, stamping art is fun for kids and a creative way to explore shapes, colors, and textures.  We made this turtle thumbprint art one day while playing with green paint.  They are so cute that you'll want to make a whole turtle family!

To make Turtle Thumbprint Art, you'll need a few supplies: 

our favorite green paint 
white paper
orange paint 
Sharpie Permanent Marker


Paint your child's thumb pad green with green paint.  Add four legs and a head by pressing tingertips into the green paint.  Once dry, use the Sharpie Permanent Marker to make smiling faces.  The orange paint on a fingertip can add details to the shells. 


 I loved that this craft was a collaboration between my kids, with Big Sister making the shells, Little Brother making the heads and feet, and Little Sister adding orange dots. Everyone had to get in on the fun.  They are just too cute to resist!
