Since we won’t be able to travel home for Easter this year, I wanted to have the boys make something we could send to Gramma. When I saw this Handprint Bunny Craft by Simple Everyday Mom, I knew it was perfect! And if you are following along from my last couple posts, you know I am a sucker for any hand/foot print craft! See below how easy this was to complete!
- Cardstock in two colors
- Glue (I used hot glue for the pom and glue stick for the paper)
- Two Pipecleaners
- Small Pom
- Large Marker
I was a little hesistant to post this because I was afraid my outcome was a little bit of a “nailed it” Pinterest struggle, ha! The example had such nice long and smooth hand prints, but the reality was that I was working with toddlers, and it is what it is! All in all, I think they made for adorable keepsakes to send to Gramma, and something so representative of this stage they are in!
First, I traced their hands. Easier said than done, in fact harder than my experience in painting hand prints! So take your time and be patient if your kiddos are little like mine! Remi was a good sport, but he giggled every time and told me it tickled! When I was done, I cut out their hands, as well as pieces for the head, inside of the ears and the cheeks of the bunny. (I chose to do the cutting because Remi just isn’t there yet, use your best judgment based off your babes skill level!)
Next, we assembled the bunny! Remi did the gluing for me, and I added the eyes and mouth with the marker. Next, we cut the pipe cleaners in half, and twisted three of the pieces together as seen in the photos. I used hot glue for the whiskers and pom to make sure they dried quickly and would stay for good!
Remi was so proud of his bunny! Although he did wonder why we weren’t adding a body to the bunny, so maybe we will try that next time! He wouldn’t wait to get it in the mail to Gramma!
Let me know how your babes enjoyed this art project below! I would love to hear about it!
