Hi, everybody. My name is Gene. I'm a graphic designer and illustrator. I've been working in the industry for about 15 years and we're going to take a look today at some thumbprint crafts for kids. Let's go get started. So what I have here is just a regular piece of construction paper and some white thumbprinty business, some, it's just a regular ink pad with some white ink on it instead of black, what you would normally have associated with like a thumbprint and you know, I've got some white ink on there and I'm just going to start going to town. So you know, we'll just make some thumbprints and actually we're going to continue to just kind of roll around here in it a little bit and see what we can make. Now, you're going to have to keep the thumb pad, print, ink, blotter thing closed because as you can see, it wears off pretty quickly, you know. Even though my thumb still looks white, as you can see right there, a second ago it actually wasn't very white. So here I am just going to make, bam, bam, just a quick little thumbprint, a quick little thumbprint dog. He's happy to see us and once you are done with that you can grab a, just a magic marker, give him some eyes, you know, maybe make him a little bit of an outline there, got his ears here, wham, if you want to do some outline. And we've got a quick little thumbprint dog. That's all there is to it to making some quick thumbprint designs with your kids. Thanks for watching. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
