If you're looking for a simple art idea to complete this summer with your kiddos, check out this fingerprint idea that was featured by Trish over at Preschool Playbook! Students will have the chance to create adorable little bugs (and flowers) using their fingerprints and markers - for those cute little accents. It's bound to get a little messy if you go the paint route, but by the looks of the finished product it will be totally worth it!

Supplies You'll Need:

Light blue construction paper

Paint

Markers

Stamp pads (if you don't want to got the paint route)

Have your little ones begin the project by drawing in a few stems and leaves for their flowers. Then they can use their fingerprints and a variety of paint colors to add flower petals and bugs (a bee, a butterfly and a ladybug were used in the example).
