Creative Tip: Using Your Imagination

Friends, we have a very special guest today. One of my 10-year old twin girls would like to offer a creative tip for us on this terrific Tuesday. So I told her to type up a post and that I would share it with all of you.

Join me in welcoming my little artistic Avery. {You may remember her from a previous post about a field trip to the museum!}

Hello, readers. This is Avery. My mom is the one who usually writes here, so I’m excited to write this and share one of my ideas.

If I ever feel bored, I like to do crafts and use my imagination. One thing I like best is making fingerprint animals and designs.

Here’s how I do it.

I get different colors of ink. They come in the form of a stamp pad.

First, I stamp my finger and press it onto a piece of paper. I like to use my thumb, because it’s bigger to make the body of an animal.

Once the ink dries, I take colored pens and draw the faces and details of the animals.

That’s really it!

The reason I like to do this type of craft is because it’s simple and it lets me use my imagination. It’s also not too messy. You just have to wash your hands.

There are so many animals you can draw. Here are some that I did yesterday.

Some of these were made by my twin sister, Clara. She’s so creative, too! 🙂

I hope you like them. Thank you for reading my post. This was fun to write. I also hope you get to use your imagination today to make something awesome.

Avery Andersen 🙂
