Our students make fingerprint stationery for gifts each year. Last year, we used black ink to make a fingerprint on sheets of paper and envelopes, covers for Post-It Notes, gift bags, and gift tags. The students then used markers to turn the fingerprints into mice. This year, we are using acrylic paints in holiday colors, and the fingerprints (pinkie finger only) will be turned into a string of lights. Again, we will make the entire ensemble of stationery and gift bag/tag. It is fast, easy, and inexpensive. The kids love to do the project and are proud of the results.
