Here’s a simple fingerprint flower pot craft that is perfect for spring! It also makes a great Mother’s Day craft for kids.
I love fingerprint crafts! They’re a great way to preserve our little one’s fingerprints while creating something fun to display.
This adorable fingerprint art project is a great way to preserve your preschooler’s fingerprints on a clay pot that can be used year after year.
Fingerprint Flower Pot
Kids will love transforming their fingerprints into a variety of bugs to adorn a fun gift for Mom or Grandma.
What You’ll Need
- mini terra-cotta clay pots
- assorted colors of acrylic paint
- fine-tip black permanent marker
- dirt and succulents (optional)
What You’ll Do
Use these fingerprint bugs as inspiration or create your own.
Squeeze paint colors into a tray or onto a paper plate.
Dip the pad of your finger into one paint color at a time and put a couple colored fingerprints randomly onto the terra-cotta clay pot.
Different angles make different shapes, and using your pinky finger will be smaller than your thumb, so get creative!
Don’t use too much paint, less is more.
Repeat with all of your desired fingerprint colors and let the paint dry.
Once the paint is completely dry, use a fine-tipped black permanent marker to draw legs, eyes, a mouth, antennae or anything you want to your fingerprint bugs!
Now you can fill your pot with dirt and plant something pretty. Enjoy!
