I love fingerprint crafts and, as an adult, I still do them on a regular basis when making cards for people.

I use dye-based ink pads intended for fingerprint or stamp projects but when crafting with kids I opt for non-toxic tempera paint as it's a safer option (in case someone decides to taste the paint or wipe their hands on their t-shirt. Lol)

You can make these swans on a dark coloured background with white paint or you can make black swans on a white background with black paint. Or, you can make your own brightly coloured swans with any colour of paint you like! ("peacock swans"?)

I've provided a swan template and a letter S template (both make lovely swans) but you can also encourage the kids to draw their own letter S or simple swan.
