Today’s handprint art for the alphabet is actually a fingerprint and thumbprint craft. The letter theme we are sharing today is Q is for Quilt. Originally I was going to have my preschoolers use handprint to make this craft until I saw a really simple (and free!) quilt template and knew she would love to fill in the little squares.
At the end of the post there will also be more activities to go along with the letter Q including do-a-dot printables, a quilt craft, and book suggestions.
- white paper
- kids ink pad – various colors
- quilt template
- black marker
Instructions for making the Fingerprint Quilt:
Print the quilt template (see supplies list).
Set out ink in various colors or use paints.
Have the child make fingerprints and thumbprints inside each of the quilt squares.
Write ‘Q is for Quilt’ next to it. We made the ‘Q’ a bubble letter so my daughter could make fingerprints inside it.

Would you make something different for this letter? My son always chooses quail while my daughter would choose queen. Neither one of them knew what a quilt was before this!
Up next is a rainbow!
