When I was a little girl, creating fingerprint art was one of my favorite rainy day activities. I always get a kick out of introducing the boys to things I loved as a kid. A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Peanut-Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats, and Popcorn by Frank Asche—things my boys now adore too! I recently gathered them around the kitchen table to create Fingerprint Comics. What a hit!

We began this art activity by cutting white card stock into strips. The boys created funny characters by pressing their fingertips into an ink pad and stamping them on the paper. They used Sharpie markers and colored pencils to add detail to their cartoons!
We laughed out loud as they created nutty characters! Captain Kitty, Super Cheese, and Mr. Stretchy Arms (he’s an evil villain) were just a few of my favorites!
It was entertaining to watch the boys get creative and bring their illustrations to life. In the picture below, my youngest son draws a tornado blowing through his city! As he drew, he actually made sound effects!
What an engaging, creative art project—one I know we will enjoy again and again!
