I’m announcing the Easter DIY season open! Today I’m sharing a card for kids, made with a handprint. It’s really quick to make and a lot of fun.
- Finger paint : white for the rabbit (but you can make it brown, yellow, black etc.), pink for the ears and nose and black for the eyes.
- a card or cardboard folded in half
- colored paper: the color will be chosen according to the rabbit’s color. Avoid paper that is too smooth and slippery.
- a roller and a brush
- glue and a cutter or scissors
- scoubidou or colored string
Start by gluing the colored paper to your card.
Brush white paint on the palm of the child’s hand and on the index and ring fingers. You won’t need the other fingers.
Little tip: the roller tickles less!
In the middle of the index and ring fingers, add a little pink with the brush.
Lay your hand flat on the card and make sure the child does not move it too much.
Dip the tip of your index finger in the dark to make the eyes.
Wipe the finger and dip it in the pink to make the nose.
Let the rabbit dry.
Cut the whiskers out of the scoubidou or string.
Glue the whiskers on each side of the nose.
And now your Easter Bunny is finished.
You can do this on any surface, as long as it is big enough to hold the child’s hand. For my book I used small cotton bags to fill with chocolates.
You can find this step by step in my book Gift Ideas to Create with Handprints as well as other Easter cards.
You will also find plenty of ideas for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day and for the little end of the year gift to give to the teacher.
If you make these bunnies and share them on social media don’t forget to tag me or add #DoItWithMrRabbit.
Have fun and see you soon for more Easter crafts.
