    Default Fingerprint Poem for Mom

    Difficulty: Very Easy

    Age: 3 and up

    What you'll need:
    2 sheets of card stock, purple and light blue
    White printer paper
    Acrylic paint: purple, light blue, pink, red, white
    Glue stick
    Damp face cloth

    How to make it:
    Print poem (below) onto white paper. We used the Comic Sans font.
    Cut poem out, curving edges around the poem making it look like a cloud.
    On a separate blank sheet of white paper, use pencil to lightly draw a heart and the word ďMOMĒ above it.
    Cut the heart and MOM out, leaving about an inch border.
    Glue the heart drawing and the poem onto the purple card stock.
    Cut around the poem and the heart drawing, leaving a small purple card stock border on each.
    Glue both onto light blue card stock, poem at the bottom.
    Have child write their name and the year on the back of the blue card stock.
    Put small puddles of paint onto a paper plate, one puddle of each color except white. Make a second puddle of pink and add some white to it to make an even lighter pink. You should have 5 puddles of paint (purple, light blue, red, pink, light pink)
    Have child dip fingertips into puddles to decorate the heart and write MOM. Do the Ms in purple and the O in light blue. Use red, pink and light pink to decorate the heart. Use damp face cloth to clean off fingertips in between each paint color.
    Let the paint dry completely.
    Fingerprint Poem

    My dirty little fingerprints Iíve left on every wall
    And on the drawers and tabletops, Iíve really marked them all
    But here are some that wonít rub off, Iím giving them to you
    Because Iím thankful to have a mom thatís just like you!

    Construction paper can be used instead of card stock but will not be as sturdy. To add more strength, cover with clear Con-tact paper.
    Use the print preview option on your printer before actually printing. This will allow you to see what the printout will look like without wasting countless sheets of paper.
    Change the purple and light blue colors we chose to your momís favorite colors. Simply match up two colors and use them for the card stock and the two paint colors for the word ďMOMĒ.
