Thumbprint friends

Get your kids to make their mark on their own craft activity. From printing friends to printing houses for friends to live in, this activity could keep your little one busy for a while. Make a whole town of thumbprint people!

What you need:

  • paint
  • dish for the paint
  • pencil/ pen
  • paper

Number of players:


Get your child to ink up their thumb ready for printing.

Instruct them to stamp their thumb onto the piece of paper.

When they have about four or five evenly spaced thumbprints set the page aside to dry.

Once dry your child can use the pencil or pen to draw faces and add limb extensions to the thumbprints.


  • To make a house for the thumbprint friends; ink up one of your child’s hands with paint. Stamp firmly to another sheet of paper.
  • Once dry, cut out the thumbprint friends and glue to the hand.
  • Join the fingers by drawing a roof.
