Review: Let's Make Some Great Fingerprint Art

Bees, elephants, buildings, pyramids, flags and more - all with fingers and ink! How amazing?

Let’s Make Some Great Fingerprint Art by Marion Deuchars is a colourful and exciting book filled with many activities. It demonstrates many different pieces of art and gives you space to recreate them.

It is packed with wonderful activities so that you never get bored. I know what I am going to do these holidays! (No, seriously, I actually am.)

The activities in this book are not only phenomenal, but they are beautiful too. The book suits everyone from younger children who love getting a bit messy to anyone above.

You don’t have to be skilled at art to create beautiful pictures with your fingers. Everyone will enjoy the activities. The dinosaur lovers will love making their own dinosaurs out of fingerprints. The dog lovers will love creating stencilled fingerprint dogs. The bird lovers will love making birds with their hands.

These examples are only a few of the things you can do in this gorgeous book. There is always something fun to do. So without further ado . . .

‘Let the inky fingers begin!’
