Quick Craft — Easy Easter Card


I wish I could take credit for this craft, but it was totally Mark’s idea. Have I mentioned how awesome he is?? Yay for awesome husbands!!! Clara and I had lots of fun making these colorful Easter cards this morning! We used our favorite washable ink pad from Melissa & Doug — vibrant colors with easy clean up!!

I drew a basket on a folded sheet of paper, and invited Clara over to add the colored “Easter eggs” in her basket with her thumbprints!!

I thought you may want to make one of these cards of your own, so you can download the free template here! They are easy and lots of fun to make!! We love finger print crafts because the kids only have tiny hands for such a short time, and this is a great way to make treasured keepsakes.

The ink comes off easily using a baby wipe, so you may want to have a few near by while you’re crafting with the kiddos.

Have fun!!!

  1. Dear Valerie,

    Are those eggs about to hatch? They are jumping up in the air! ;-)

    Love,
    Mark

  2. That’s an egg-cellent idea. The fingerprints make perfectly shaped eggs!

  3. Very cute!

  4. Bonus: Having your kiddo’s fingerprints in print so you can identify who stole the cookies from the cookie jar… :0)

  5. And one egg is already off for an Easter hunt! Great craft.

  6. Ooooohhhh another craft I can add to our to do list

  7. Hi Valerie,
    Fabulous blog, I love it. Your daughter is lucky to have such a creative Mom (and she’s pretty cute!) I love the finger print idea for the Easter Eggs – and those stamp pads are really cool, I didn’t know about them.

  8. lol at Mark’s comment! This is a super fun, and simple, Easter craft!

  9. I love this! I was trying to think of an easy spring activity for our mom’s club craft group get together next week, and if you don’t mind, I think I’ll use this! Perfect, since a lot of the kids that come are under 2. I’ve also included a link to this in my weekly wrap up post tonight (http://infantbibliophile.blogspot.com/2011/04/weekly-wrap-up-pre-k-easter-art.html)

  10. Well done Mark! This is just ideal for classes of eager children. Thank you for linking on the RC – hope to see you back soon!

  11. We did this yesterday, it was such fun :) We have the same ink pad too. I even made some larger eggs with my finger prints. Parents can have fun too right? :)

  12. Ah-hah! I just found your finger print eggs here! And I thought I had an original idea…. :)

    • Hee hee — You know what they say about great minds, Kimberly! ;-) Have a great weekend!! xoxo
