Thumb print hearts tree artwork

Thumb print hearts tree artwork

Thumb print art is a fun way to make family mementos. Make your own thumb print hearts tree using the FREE tree template and your child's fingerprints to make the hearts. It's an ideal gift for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day or Father's Day.

What you need:

  • 1 x FREE tree template
  • 1 x A2 sheet of paper
  • black marker pen
  • red paint
  • thumbs and fingers

Number of players:


Print out the FREE tree template. Place it under a sheet of A2 layout paper and trace over the tree shape. You can add more branches if you like, or even make some of the branches longer … the template is just a guide to make it easier.

Now put a blob of red paint onto a paper plate or an ice cream container lid and then swirl it out with a paintbrush to make it not so 'blobby' and thick. Load up your child's thumbs with red paint. 

Use two thumb prints to form hearts all over your tree.
