Have you seen these amazing Fingerprint Counting Printables for Spring? They’re so much fun, and they’ve inspired me to make this American Flag Fingerprint Counting printable!
This printable covers counting numbers 1-50 twice – once for the stars and once for the red stripes.

How to Use the American Flag Fingerprint Counting Printable
- Heavyweight construction paper, cardstock, watercolor paper or scrapbook paper
- Tempera paint.
- Free printable template.
- Something to hold the paint. We like to use paper plates.
This is a pretty simple activity, and the printable requires no special preparations. Just print one of the pages (there’s a version with numbers and one with blank circles), put some paint on a paper plate, and let your child dig in.
My daughter had her own ideas and thought we should use white and purple paint. I suggested she get started with white and red and mix some purple paint once she was done counting. She thought that was a good idea 🙂
She’s really good at counting, so it wasn’t really a challenge for her, but she still enjoyed making the fingerprints and counting along.
When she was done, I let her go wild with red, white, and blue paint, and she giggled as she fingerpainted the entire surface of the paper 🙂
Are your kids not ready for counting up to 50 yet? Check out my Hello Sunshine! Counting Printable Pack that focuses on numbers 1-10 with a few variations that go up as high as 20.
