Craft for Kids -- Fingerprint Lights Card

One of our recent craft projects was inspired by the Fingerprint Holiday Lights craft from the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club website. To make it our own, we added a fingerprinted Christmas tree, used ink pads instead of paint, and turned it into a card with the fingerprinted holiday lights as a border. It was such a quick and easy project! The kids cannot wait to mail their handmade cards to faraway friends and family!
