Hello everyone! Long time no talk! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately, if you follow me on my social media, you’d know I’ve had a cold & my wisdom teeth pulled recently, hence why I’ve been absent. But, today I am back with some cute Easter crafts for your little ones. These were a lot of fun to make and turned out really cute. I’ll admit that the Carrots didn’t turn out as nicely as I’d hoped but that’s okay! Hunter doesn’t notice the difference so thats all that matters haha. These crafts are great for kids of any ages too, not just toddlers! Okay, lets get into it…
Let’s start with the Footprint Easter Bunny:
For this craft you will need the following;
- 2 pieces of white, grey, cream or brown cardstock card – we chose grey
- Pink paint
- Glitter (if you like, we decided not to use glitter in the end)
- Black & Pink markers/textas
- Optional extra – bowl
Step 1: Paint your little one’s feet with pink paint and press them onto one of the pieces of cardstock, ensuring you allow a good amount of space around them as these will make the bunny’s ears.
Step 2: While the footprints are drying, grab your 2nd piece of cardstock and draw on a large circle (I used a bowl as a guide). Then cut out and add the bunny’s facial features (see below), don’t forget the whiskers! You could also use stick on eyes instead of drawing them on if you’d prefer.
Step 3: Cut around the footprints into bunny ears and glue onto your bunny’s head. Set aside to dry & you’re done.
You could also write a little message on the back of the Easter Bunny’s head & use it as a cute card – this would be a great card to give your little one’s teacher if they are in school.
Let’s move onto the Footprint Carrots…
To make this craft you will need the following;
- 1 piece of cream or white cardstock card
- Orange & Green paint
Step 1: Paint your little love’s feet with the orange paint and press them onto the piece of card, making sure you leave a decent gap between them, allow to dry.
Step 2: Now you have 2 options here, you could use your child’s handprints for this (like we did) or you can just paint the tops of the carrots with a paintbrush. If you want to use your child’s hands, I suggest only painting their 4 fingers & not the thumb or palms of their hands as I believe that’s where we went wrong (live and learn right?!), then have them press their fingers onto the card, lining the bottom of their fingers up so they’re touching the toe prints. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Once dry, cut around the footprints to make a carrot shape & you’re done!
As I previously mentioned, ours didn’t turn out perfectly, but I still think they’re really cute!
Please let me know if you decide to make these! You can either tag me on Instagram or send me photos on Snapchat or Facebook, all of my social media is listed at the bottom of the page.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend whatever you’re doing!
