Capture your child's fingerprint and turn it into an Easter bunny card. This quick craft is simple and inexpensive so you can send as many Easter bunny cards as you'd like.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 minutes to create, plus drying time

Here's How:

  1. Spread a thin layer of white paint onto a paper plate. Dip your child's thumbprint into the paint, coating it evenly.
  2. Press his thumb onto the construction paper.
  3. Allow to dry completely.
  4. With a white crayon, draw 2 bunny ears.
  5. With a pink crayon, color the center of the bunny's ears. Also, draw a nose and mouth.
  6. With a black crayon, draw 2 eyes on the bunny's head and 2 whiskers coming from the bunny's nose.
  7. Above the bunny's head, write "Some Bunny Loves You" or another message of your choice. Kids can sign their names below the bunny's head. We'll call this part of the project the "card."
  8. Trim the card down to a smaller size. It doesn't have to be measured to a certain height or width.
  9. Lay the card onto the second piece of construction paper. We'll call this second piece of construction paper the "base." You'll be attaching your card to it. You will want this base to show at least 1 inch on all four sides to give your card a nice border.
  10. Cut the second piece of construction paper, making sure you're trimming it to be larger than your card.
  11. Spread a thin layer of glue onto the back of your card and glue it to the base.
  12. Allow to dry completely.

Tips:

  1. Use a very small amount of glue. Otherwise, the glue will moisten the paper so much that it will become wavy.
  2. If sending your card through the mail, put it in between two small pieces of cardboard to protect it in the envelope.
  3. On the back of the card, write a simple line that says which one of your child's thumbprints you used and date it.
