Reverse Fingerprint Christmas Tree Card Directions
1. Get out your Christmas tree cookie cutter or print out this free Christmas Tree Template on cardstock–you want a nice thick tree to trace.
2. Trace cookie cutter or template onto sheets of cardstock. Each tree will make two cards.
3. Cut out traced Christmas Trees.
4. Use painters tape to attach one Christmas tree to the front of a blank greeting card. Repeat until all cut trees are attached to a card.
5. Invite your child to paint the cards with the Christmas tree taped to the front with their fingerprints using tempura paint color (or colors) of choice. You can also use eraser tips, cotton swabs, or Kwik Stix to paint. Allow to dry.
6. Carefully remove the taped cardstock Christmas tree from the front of the greeting card to reveal the reverse fingerprint Christmas tree card.
7. Use a glue stick to attach the Christmas tree that you removed to another blank greeting card. Allow to dry. Now you have two fingerprint Christmas tree cards to give to friends and family!
