Fingerprint Activities: Animals by Fiona Watt and Erica Harrison (Usborne Publishing)

With a "WHOOP!" of glee, Charlotte greeted this latest book arrival with open arms. Any excuse to get mucky and she's there...!
"Fingerprint Activities: Animals" is a glorious little activity book with its own rainbow of inky colours to get your children off to a flying start with creating their own awesome fingerprint creations.

Pages guide you through the basics of turning your smudgy fingerprints into interesting shapes and animal characters, polishing your artwork off with coloured pencils or pens to suit.

We couldn't wait to dive in and have a go. The book is spiral bound (YAY!) which means it lies perfectly flat, ideal for would-be artists (there's nothing more frustrating than seeing a brilliant activity book that you have to break the spine of just to be able to use it!)

Suitable for a wide range of ages, "Fingerprint Activities: Animals" is part of a fab range of activity books from Usborne - Go and take a look at a few more on their website.


Charlotte's best bit: Making a multitude of thumbprint bugs and creepy crawlies!

Daddy's favourite bit: A really nicely presented little activity book with an awesome palette of inky colours to get you up and running straight away. Just add pens or coloured pencils and let your imagination fly!
