Easy Thumb Printed Shamrocks

I love using the kids’ fingerprints in crafts! It’s a fun way to treasure their tiny fingerprints which will only be tiny for such a short time. Clara and I made some St. Patrick’s Day cards using her thumb print with a green ink pad to make a series of hearts which formed the shamrock leaves. Later, I added the stems with a green colored pencil. She was so proud of her festive shamrock cards!

Super quick and easy!!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    I anticipate this being quite popular with law enforcement households!


  2. Now if I could only figure out how to just transfer the fingerprints all over our windows onto the cards…that would give me a good jump start on Spring Cleaning…

  3. Those are so cute! I am going to be posting about making fingerprint pictures soon, too, with a spring theme, however.

  4. I love the heart idea! We just did plain fingerprints!

  5. Those came out really cute.

  6. Love this!

  7. Nice and simple and so very festive!

  8. Love it!!

  9. Thank you for the idea! We used card stock and they came out beautifully! Great project for my 4 yr old and 3 yr old!
