This Halloween fingerprint silhouette picture is a really nice and simple craft for all ages. It is slightly more involved than some crafts that I do with BB, because to make the picture you have to make sure you completely go around the edge of your cut out or it won’t work properly. He didn’t totally understand that, but we got there in the end. Plus making little ones finish the craft properly is a great way of helping them to develop their concentration.

Make sure that you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

For this Halloween fingerprint silhouette pictures you will need:

  • Ink pads
  • Paper
  • Masking tape

On a piece of paper cut out your Halloween shapes, I made a few bats and pumpkins. That way everyone could use multiple shapes without worrying that someone else would go without.

Use masking tape on the back of the shapes to stick them down. I did try it with normal tape, but it’s more likely to rip the paper when you take them off.

Next using either your finger or the rubber at the top of a pencil make prints all around your picture. Make sure that you completely do the outline of your cut out or the picture won’t work properly.

When you have completely finished your Halloween fingerprint silhouette pictures, carefully peel off the cut out shapes to reveal the picture.
