CIY Staff Tips:



Fold a blank sheet of white paper in half to form a card. With a brown Crayola® Marker, draw some whimsical tree branches.


Add some playful birds to the tree! Dip the tip of your finger in water and rub it in a bright colour of Crayola Washable Watercolors. Press onto the tree, leaving a fingerprint. *Tip – use your pointer finger to make a mama bird and your pinky finger to make baby birds!


Add fingerprint leaves and flowers to the tree for a bright, springtime feel!


Add details to the birds, like feet and feathers, and a special message using Markers.
