Add pretty pictures to this banner... either use our Artwork, or create your own. Some like to use yarn to make swirls on their banners. You can do this by dripping a line of glue onto your paper, then pressing the yarn into the glue. When you are done with this step... let the glue dry.

Print the Thumb Print pictures... one for each child. Open the ink pad (or water color paint)... press your thumb into the ink... careful now... we don't want ink all over! If you get too much ink on your thumb... dab your thumb with the paper towel. Press your thumb onto the Thumb Print picture. Once you are done... wash your hands really good with soap and water. Write your name and date on the Thumb Print picture.

Once your are done with this... and everything is totally dry...
put it all together by adding the ribbon (or yarn).
