How to Make a Fingerprint Tree for Teachers
Now that you have your free classroom fingerprint tree printable, it is time to make it the ultimate teacher gift! Print the file in color and you will have something that looks like the image below. I suggest printing on white card stock to make sure it is sturdy enough for all of those fingerprints.
Next, you will need to grab different color inks and have each student in the class press their fingerprint onto the tree. Just use a finger, press it onto the ink pad, and let them decide where on the tree to place their “leaf”. Your tree will fill up with little leaves that are oh so meaningful to the teacher.
What type of ink should you use?
I would definitely use something that is easy to wash off of little fingers. I would also get a set or pick up several different colors so you have some variety in your fingerprint “leaves” on your tree. Pick up this ink pad set from Amazon with tons of colors and it is washable ink as well. That should last you through several classes worth of fingerprints!
You can give this gift as is or frame it up for Teacher Appreciation Week. This fingerprint tree teacher gift might even bring a few tears from the special teacher. Those are the best gifts of all, right?
Print this cute tree and start on this great thank you gift idea for the teachers in your life. I love a meaningful gift that is inexpensive as well. For these and more quick and easy crafts, be sure to subscribe to our Quick and Easy Crafts Pinterest Board.
