How to Make a Thumbprint Penguin Family Art Work

This precious little thumbprint penguin family makes a great piece of art to display in your home each winter!
How to Make a Thumbprint Penguin Family Art Work
You will Need:
black, white, blue, and orange craft paint
basic craft supplies
How to Make a Thumbprint Penguin Family Art Work Depending on how big your family is will determine how many thumbprints you will need. That will also determine how long your paper is. My family has 6 people in it, so my paper was cut 4" X 12".

Paint the background of the paper blue. Paint snowy hills using white or cream paint.

Then paint the child's thumb white and have them stamp thumbprints on the hills.

How to Make a Thumbprint Penguin Family Art Work Do the same thing by using the opposite end of the brush and dip it in black paint to make the penguin eyes.

For the baby of the family, (the last and littlest thumbprint) I did not give him eyes. With a thin black marker, I gave him to U shaped eyes to make it look like he was sleeping.

You can leave it as it or add names above or below the penguin or write the family's surname on the top. Sign and date the back or lower right.

Frame it and enjoy keeping it out each winter!
