We did the thumb print tree and it was a hit! I worried about the same thing, older guests not wanting to have ink on their fingers, but I ended up deciding that I really didn’t care that much. They didn’t have to do it if they didn’t want to. We had a friend of ours who is an artist do the tree for us. Not really sure what she used. I went to hobby lobby and bought these little round ink pads in light green and dark green. Here is our tree.

As long as you have the wet wipes you’re fine. The tree is such a nice memento, I have it hanging on my wall and people come over and all say what a great idea that was.

I went to wedding that did this and it was so much fun! Everyone also seemed to participate as well.

 

We also are going to do this as our guestbook and then frame it to put in our house.

And as others have said as long as there are wipes to clean up people will be more than happy to participate.

We decided not to do the fingerprint tree because of the ink issue. Instead we did something like this:

I’m kind of Type-A, so I would do the leaves. I like the symmetry of having all the same shapes (leaves). That said, you can provide wet wipes (get the hypoallergenic, unscented ones) and most of the ink should come off easily.
