Fingerprint robins

By | November 16, 2014

Today we made fingerprint robins to make into gift tags. We’ve been reading A Year in Crafts by Clare Youngs and this was one of our favourite projects in it. They were easy to make but add a sweet little handmade touch to gifts.

All you need are sheets of paper, a pen and red ink pad.

I drew robins on to a sheet of white paper, then set up my 4 year old with the red ink pad.
