Today we present an idea for a teacher appreciation card with fingerprints. It consists of a finger-painted shape and kids’ names. We chose a star, but you can also choose a heart or a flower. Other option is a bunch of balloons, where each print is a separate balloon with a drawn string tied to it.
You will need
- Sheet of cardboard in A3 format
- Template – the printed template of the shape will be useful. Below you can download our star matching the sheet in A3 format.
- Paper tape
- Acrylic paints
- Palette or sheet of paper – for applying paint and test prints.
- Frame – optional, but a framed card looks much better.
- Wishes – optional, can be printed or handwritten.
How to make a teacher appreciation card with fingerprints?
The first step in making a fingerprint card is to prepare a template. In our case, it was a star whose template you can download above. After printing, cut out the center of the star and stick it to the target sheet using paper tape that you can easily remove later.
Now kids can start painting with their fingers on the prepared base. A finger to paint, then a few fingerprints in the star and one under the star.
When the paint is dry, children can write their names.
Wishes or dedication can be printed or handwritten.
The last step is to frame the card.
Teacher appreciation card with fingerprints is ready!

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
