Easy Father's Day Craft

Just had to share this fingerprint art in case any of you are in a bind for Father's Day! We made it in about 10 minutes and the girl's loved getting their fingers all colored. I used their pinkie twice for the caterpillars because they looked short. Just used a sharp black pen/marker for the detail. I might paint some grass too!





You might want to make sure you use washable ink =) The blue was from my scrapbooking and NOT washable so off we went to the pool for a good soaking after Claire put her entire hand on the ink pad! The girls loved it and we went back today. We will be having a lot of time at the pool this summer without Sea World passes!

If you missed my preious post, we are getting ready for our first home study on Monday! Please pray as we make our preparations!

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. :) We really want to be able to tell the story of our trip in a way that will make others feel like they have gone too (and WANT to go!) Sorry to have to tell you this, but my husband is a professional photographer. That's why the pictures look good... :) His camera is a Canon 5D with a 50 mm f1.4 lens. (I had to get him to tell me all that.) Blessings,

Sarah

What a sweet card and it will be so fun to look back on those wee little finger prints over the years.
