Finger Printing Art Set £2.99 @ Play.com
This is a really cute little arty set that kids will love. Basically they'll use their fingerprints to create pictures - the ultimate in unique peices of artwork!
The Finger Printing Art Set comes with four ink pads for your fingers - the messy-ish bit that children will really enjoy - some shape stamps and a set of pencils.
All you need after that is some paper and an imagination allowed to run riot.
I think this is a really simple idea that could really fire up your child's imagination. They could use the green ink and their fingerprints to create a caterpillar, stamp on the smiley face and draw on some legs; lots of fingerprints grouped together with a trunk drawn underneath for trees...the pictures are endless.
Of course you don't have to create pictures, fingertip patters in different colours would be incredibly striking and can be used to decorate the front of cards and used for 'thank you' notes for presents.
Play have reduced this lovely little item, which would make for an inexpensive addition to the present draw, from £5.99 down to £2.99 and that's all you'll pay as there are no delivery charges with Play.com.
