Fingerprint Christmas Lights Christmas Tree Cards Step by Step Directions
Step 1 – Trace Christmas tree cookie cutters or Print the free Christmas tree template onto Cardstock
Step 2 – Cut Christmas trees out for fingerprint lights cards
Cut out the Christmas trees for this fingerprint lights craft. Cutting and working with scissors is a great way for children and adults to exercise the fine motor muscles in the hand. With screen use on the rise… fine motor activities are more important now than ever!
Step 3 – Use a fine tip permanent marker to draw a light string on each Christmas tree cutout for fingerprint Christmas lights
It is best to use a fine tip black permanent marker to make the light string for the fingerprint lights cards. An extra fine tip permanent marker will create a line that is too thin for this Christmas craft.
Don’t worry… it’s super easy to draw by hand without a fingerprint Christmas lights template. Simply move the pen in swirls and squiggles as you draw a line from the top down. As you draw down the Christmas tree make sure you are moving your Christmas light string from side to side to fill up the whole tree.

Step 4 – Invite Children to make fingerprint Christmas lights craft
Invite your children to dip their fingers into tempera paints to make fingerprint lights on the Christmas tree cutouts. My daughter liked to use her pinky finger best because they made the cutest little fingerprint Christmas lights. Be sure to have a package of wipes or a wet washcloth nearby to quickly wipe fingers in order to use multiple colors.
We used red, green, yellow, orange, blue and purple tempera paint for this fingerprint lights craft.
Step 5 – Glue Christmas trees with fingerprint lights to the front of Christmas cards
Invite your children to help you glue each fingerprint lights Christmas tree to the front of a red, green, blue, or kraft brown blank greeting cards. Flip each Christmas tree over and rub glue on the back with a glue stick. Flip the fingerprint lights Christmas tree back over and glue it onto the front of a blank greeting card.
