Finger Print Tree




You will need :

  • Plain paper
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
How to make it…

  1. Mix red, yellow and a little blue paint to make brown.
  2. Using a paintbrush, paint a tree trunk and branches on your paper.
  3. Use lots of reds, yellows, browns and oranges for the leaves. You can mix different shades by experimenting with red, yellow and brown.
  4. Using your fore finger (first finger) print leaves of different colours on the tree branches.
  5. Leave to dry.  See steps in photos.


  • For two-tone leaves, put your finger in two different colours before printing on the page.
  • Don’t wash the paint off your fingers each time you change colour, just dip into another colour.
  • You can make 3 or 4 prints from one load of paint so you don’ have to re-dip your finger for every leaf.
