How to make it

Spooky Thumbprints - Step 1

1. To make them, just help your child press her thumb onto a nontoxic rubber stamp pad (black for spiders and bats, orange for pumpkins), then onto a piece of heavy paper or card stock.

2. Add small dots of white acrylic paint (we used a dull pencil to apply it) for bat and spider eyes.

3. Let the ink and paint dry before using fine-point markers to add pupils, legs, wings, stems, and other features and details.
