Try this fun craft with a lesson on Jonah and the big fish. Have kids press their thumbs onto an ink pad, then make a thumbprint in the center of a paper to make the fish’s body. Then have kids dip their pinkie in the same color ink and make two pinkie prints at one end of the thumbprint to make the fish’s tail. Help direct kids’ fingers, or let them get creative as they place their fingerprints.
Using their index fingers and blue or green ink, kids can add fingerprint water and waves.
Use this fingerprint technique to make pictures for other Bible lessons, such as thumbprint animals for Noah’s ark, a thumbprint-patterned tomb for Jesus’ death and resurrection, or fingerprint lions in the den with Daniel.
