Footprint Easter Bunny Craft

IMG_20140309_093916566I just never get sick of my daughter’s cute little piggies. There is just something so cute about baby feet. With time racing by, she is quickly becoming less of a baby & more of a little girl. Mommy needs to preserve all these baby moments while I can. With Easter nearing, I thought it time for our first Easter craft.

What you will need:

Poster board

Plain white paper

Paint

Paint brush

Markers

Cotton Balls

Glue

Paper plate

Directions:

015

Spread paint on a paper plate.

019

Dip your child’s feet in the paint.

020

Press the paint covered foot on a piece of paper. Repeat with the other foot & let dry. Cut out the feet prints.

110

Sketch out your bunny around the baby’s feet, using the feet as bunny feet

037

Draw some egg shapes on a piece of paper & have your child paint on it.

109

Cut out the eggs & set aside.

111

Glue the eggs to the chest where the hands would be holding them.

Cut out two oval shapes as hands & glue them down over the eggs to make it appear as if they are holding them. Draw lines on the paws.

114

Paint/color your bunny’s ears, eyes, nose & tummy. Outline the mouth & whiskers.

115

117

Squeeze glue on to the parts that you want fluffy, like the bunny ears.

118

Spread cotton balls out across the glue.

125

My daughter loves gluing. This is a part that you can do together.

We chose to cut our bunny shape out & hang it on the refrigerator with magnets.

We also made a smaller one with floppy ears. This looks a little more like a floppy earred dog than a bunny, but I still think it came out pretty cute.

My daughter got a real kick out of making the paint foot prints. We made several set of foot prints because she thought it was so funny. We hung our craft on the refrigerator. Before bed this evening Mai ran up to it & said “Goodnight Bunny”. She is so cute.

    I might have a go at this. My children have grown and flown. May have to use the cat or the dog for the footprints. Nice post.

    I wanted to stop by and thank you for coming over to The Cedar Seasons and following!

    I also adore this little kid craft, I will definitely have to do this with my son.

    Also, if you were still interested in maybe doing some type of collaboration, I would be happy to do so. My current theme is Easter, so anything Easter Themed would be great. Just let me know!

    Thanks again and I will be stopping by often to pick up on some more of your creative ideas!
