Sad to say, kid #4 and #6 don't have any handprint keepsake crafts!  And #5 only does because she helped me make these adorable handprint Easter cards!  

Little fingers and toes are just the sweetest, so capture those fleeting days with handprint art because soon enough, they get big-- and they aren't so sweet anymore! HA!

As spring weather is making its way here and Easter is a few short weeks away, set aside some time to make some Easter handprint crafts, such as a handprint spring chick and handprint Easter egg.  

You could make these Easter handprints on a piece of cardstock, a canvas, and/or turn them into Easter cards to send to family.

HOW TO MAKE A SPRING CHICK HANDPRINT EASTER CARD


Supplies:
To make a spring chick handprint Easter card, begin by folding a piece of cardstock in half the long way.  Cut the folded cardstock into two pieces.  Use the other piece to make the Easter egg handprint card or make another spring chick.  

Paint your child's hand yellow and then help your child press his/her hand onto the front of the card.

Allow the handprint to dry while you clean up your child's hand.  Alternatively, if you are also making the handprint Easter egg card, paint your child's hand again and press his/her handprint on the blank card.  The paint should dry fairly quickly.  

Next, with a yellow marker, draw a circle around your child's handprint.  Draw some ''hair'' on top of the chick if you'd like, too.

If your child is old enough and would like to continue to help, have him/her make grass with a fork.  Press the fork into green paint and then "rake down'' to make grass-like prints.  Allow that to dry, and using your child's fingerprint have him/her make Easter eggs using other paint colors.

To finish off the handprint spring chick, glue two googly eyes, a triangle beak nose cut from orange paper, and two yellow feathers- one on each side of the chick.  

Finish the card off by adding a simple message inside the card!  

SPRING CHICK HANDPRINT CRAFT FOR EASTER



HOW TO MAKE A EASTER EGG HANDPRINT EASTER CARD


Supplies: 
This Easter egg handprint craft is a bit simpler in supplies than the spring chick.  Some of the steps are similar though.  

If you have not done so already, fold a piece of white cardstock in half the long way.  Cut it in half.  Use one of the cards to make the handprint Easter egg and the other for the spring chick above, or make two handprint eggs.  

Paint your child's hand one color and then help your child press his/her hand onto the card.  Another option is to create stripes of paint.  

Clean up your child's hand and let the handprint dry for a few minutes-- it shouldn't take long.  

Next, draw an oval shape around your child's handprint.  

Using the markers, create simple designs onto the Easter egg-- zig zags, dots, stipes, etc.  Be creative! 

Finally, paint grass at the bottom of the card by dipping the back side of a fork into green paint.  Paint down to create grass marks.  

Once everything is dry, add a sweet Easter message to the inside of the card!

I may be a bit biased, but these handprint Easter cards are just the sweetest!  I know a couple of special family members that will just adore these Easter cards!

Have a someone special near or far who would love getting a sweet handprint Easter card in the mail?  

Set aside your morning or afternoon to make a spring chick handprint and/or handprint Easter egg!

Enjoy!
