Family Fingerprint Project

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I just love the holidays. When I think of this time of year I think of spending time with family, holiday crafting and great food!

Here is an adorable project idea from our very talented designer Kala. She made this little "bird" print with her two little nuggets. She has two kids and loves doing projects that incorporate them.
The birds bodies were made with the kids fingerprints and then Kala hand painted on the other features.
The little pink bird that is not on the line is my favorite, and it just happens that this was a spur of the moment 'mistake' by a very eager 2 year old who decided to go ahead and start painting himself. Kala ran with the 'mistake' blob and this little bird took flight!

This is a perfect way to create beautiful art with meaning and spend quality time crafting with your kids and families!

Hope you loved the project!
Looking for good paint?
For kids crafting, Kala recommends an acrylic paint that is washable. Her favorite brand is Folk Art Paint. Craft-e-Corner carries tons of fun colors in this paint- Check them out HERE.

What is your favorite craft project to do with your kids or families? We'd love to hear your ideas!


  1. This is so Precious! I would love to have one of these from when my sons were little. They are now 34 and 32 years old. So it would be extra special to look at now.
    Also, I want to say the Pink bird is so cute. I wonder if it says anything about your 2 year olds future?

    1. You could probably get your boys to do one for you :D I think it would be fun at any age (and probably a little neater with older "babies" ! My little guy is one eager painter. Both my kids are very artistic and like having the paints out. Thanks for stopping by, I'm glad you liked the project :)
