This is a fun activity that doesn't require much prep work and keeps little ones entertained for a while. I cut out a big egg shape from felt and then a bunch of different shapes- lines, hearts, zig zags, circles, etc- from other scraps of felt. I spread them out on the felt board and Eva was able to decorate her egg any way she wanted. The best part is that it can be used over and over.
We also made a special card to send to our friends and family for Easter. To make a bunny print I painted Eva's index and middle finger along with her palm using white paint.
She then pressed her hand down on a piece of paper and *tada* a bunny!
We made a dozen in no time but I did need to repaint her hand for each one to ensure a full bunny. When they were dry, I added a face and a little message and now they are ready to be mailed.
In addition to the card, our loved ones will also be getting a picture of that sweet "somebunny."
Since we were in bunny gear, we did the bunny hop around the backyard too.
(apparently the Easter Bunny is a disco fan!)
So cute! I love the bunny cards :)ReplyDelete
I've been wanting to make a felt board for my kids - did you make your own? How did you do it (or where did you buy it)?
Awesome Kara! I love your blog and wish you had started it when she was 18 months old! (Luke's current age!) You inspired me to make some spring flowers with him yesterday and it was a lot of fun! Keep up the great work and post comments on the big blogs - you could definitely make some ad money on this blog! Can't wait for more posts!ReplyDelete
Jan- I did make the felt board- it's just a frame I had laying around with the glass removed and felt glued into it- super easy
Kristi- we have to get together one of these days- Luke and Eva can get crafty together! :)
Cute idea! I was just thinking how I could make a bunny out of a hand print. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
