Kid Made Easter Cards




These are cute cards made with 1 thumb print for the face and the pinky fingers for the ears. Then we decorated with markers. I love the saying,"Thumb body loves you. Guess Who ?"
I found this idea in my MOPS Magazine this month.


This is Caity's.



This one is Colton's.







The Easter lamb card. If your kids love peeling stickers ,then this is the right craft for your child.











You will need:
Card Stock or construction Paper, Black Paint, Sponge Brush, Glue,Wiggly eyes and Reinforcement labels.






First, paint hand with the black paint.
If you do not want to paint the hand, you can always trace it with a black marker and color in the hand print.









Place hand on paper and make a hand print.


Place reinforcement labels on the palm part of the hand print.
Then decorate with eye and ribbon.






Decorate around the lamb with a field scene.




Cheyanne's lamb.

You've outdone yourself. That handprint lamb with the stickers is TOO perfect. I love to do projects with painting my kids' hand and feet...just to document their grwoing years. Can't wait to do this one! Thanks!

i am new to your blog! it is great. i love the design. these are some really cute art projects. thanks for sharing. take care!

tommie said...

we did these today....the time between drying paint and putting the circles on (in a 3 and 4 year old mind) WAY too long. I should have divided it into two different projects....oh well, stick in the folder for spring of next year.

It was fun though!

Can't wait to do the cotton ball one! LOL

Thanks for the great ideas! I'm going to do it with my kids.

I did not have any problem with the paint drying, maybe my paint was old. But I also painted on the paint instead of dipping their hands in paint, which sometimes gets more on their hands which takes longer to dry. I know for young ones they hate to wait.

Annie said...

Cute ideas!

Amy said...

I love the lamb idea! So precious!

Chris said...
