Garden of Eden Fingerprint Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a simple, but enjoyable craft, for younger children.  If doing it with a large group of kids and a single adult you'll want to raise the age rating from Age 2+ to Ages 3+ or 4+.

On a piece of construction paper, make an apple tree and a serpent.

Add fingerprint clouds, sun, grass, butterflies, flowers, etc as the children prefer.  Visit the Fingerprint characters section of the site for inspiration.

Check this out for alternate "paint" idea for the Garden.

Write a Memory Verse at the bottom of the page.  For example (the first one is my preference):

Psalm 119:10:  I will seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.


Numbers 32:23  You may be sure that your sin will find you out.


Proverbs 14:12  There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
