Fingerprint Owls and Other Fantasies by Marjorie P. Katz and Ed Emberly's Great Thumbprint Drawing Book are good references. I had my K-5ers write poems and illustrate them with thumb and fingerprints. They used washable markers on the tip of their fingers. One color per finger.

How about animals and characters made out of stamped thumbprints?
Put them in a "Spring" background. Thumbirdies in the trees
Thumbunnies in the grass...........this sounds fun!
