How We Did It

Fingerprint Insects
Before we could even get to the insects, he thought it would be a good idea to make a dog to go with them. To make a dog, paint your palm brown.
Fingerprint Insects
Stamp your palm 3 times on the paper. Two on the bottom and one on top like a pyramid.
Fingerprint Insects
Make a fist and paint the outside of it. Use it to stamp 2 ears at the top of the dog.
Fingerprint Insects
Use your finger to print 4 legs on the dog. This is all you will add to the dog now until it dries. Now it is time for the insects!
Fingerprint Insects
Dip your finger in yellow and print it on the page to make bees. They may not look like bees now, but after your fingerprint dries you will add details.
Fingerprint Insects
Paint or dip your pointer finger in a color and stamp it on the page to make the body of the butterfly.
Fingerprint Insects
Dip your finger in a different color and stamp two on each side of the butterfly to make wings.
Fingerprint Insects
He even added a few red fingerprints that we will turn into ladybugs.
Fingerprint Insects
Let the paint dry and use markers to add details. The dog needs a face. The butterflies need antennae. The bees need strips, wings, a head, and antennae. The ladybugs need spots and a tiny head. We put it on the fridge for display and he is so proud of everything he could create with his hand and fingerprints!
