Christmas Light Craft

DSC_6955 This was a super easy craft idea that I adapted from one I saw on Pinterest. 

What you need--

Stamp pads of different colors
A Sharpie
Paper.  I chose watercolor paper because I was afraid that the texture of canvas wouldn’t show the fingerprints and the sheen on poster board would smear with the stamp ink.  Alternately, you could use cardstock.

Process--

Draw a string of lights with a sharpie
Let your child use his or her stamped fingers to ink the “light bulbs” on the string of lights
Complete the process by drawing the filaments of the light bulbs with the sharpie

You’ve just made a keepsake to frame, a great start to a Christmas card, or something else to add to the refrigerator.  Happy Christmas!
