Thumbprint Chicks

Young children are always intrigued with turning their handprints or in this case thumbprints into something new and exciting.


Yellow Poster Paint

Scraps of orange paper or an orange marker

Black fine felt tip pen


Willing hands


Pour a little yellow paint onto a pad of folded newspaper or a paper plate and gently dip the child's thumb into it. We found that the second print was usually the best! Practice a few times until you get the hang of it.

When your thumbprints are dry, add details with a black and orange pen (or cut snips of orange paper or felt for the beaks).

Older children may enjoy adding speech bubbles with "cheep cheep" or other chick-like noises inside!
