Game: Guess The Fingerprint!

Enlist the help of some friends or family members for this fingerprint guessing game.



  1. Enlist the help of some friends or family members.
  2. One at a time (in privacy) have each volunteer color their non-dominant hand’s fingertips with washable markers.
  3. Then in turn have each volunteer make a set of fingerprints by pressing their colored fingertips onto a piece of paper. Then send them off to wash their hands!
  4. Make sure every volunteer uses a different color marker and that no one can see what color others are using (keep the mystery!!!).
  5. Once you have a collection of fingerprints, shuffle them up.
  6. Now gather all the volunteers together, pass the fingerprints out randomly and have folks try to guess whose fingerprints are whose!
