A collection of fun activities for little hands!

Footprint Bunnies

on April 7, 2012

I am a huge fan of hand and footprint art, so be prepared that I will share lots of ideas for this type of activity! These are easy and usually lead to an afternoon of painting in our house!  All you need are:

construction paper

washable paint

paint brushes

paper plates

markers

glue stick

scissors

As with all messy play activities, plan for the end of the activity first and have a warm bucket of water and some towels nearby your painting area.  I get started by giving my daughter a circle to cut out and glue onto a large sheet of construction paper (with my 2 year old I obviously do the cutting for him).  Place some paint in the paper plates. Draw circles for the eyes and the kids use their thumb prints for both these and the nose.  Paint their feet and help them create the ears of the bunny with their prints.  Then draw in the mouth and you have a super cute Easter art activity!
