One of our new Easter Traditions is to do crafts that can become keepsakes. We love creating memories, and what better way than to create crafts.
I looked on Pinterest (moms hack for everything) and found these great ideas that are age appropriate for Ardyn. Hand and footprints with paint are pretty standard for babies but we took it up a notch and created something meaningful and scrumptiously cute!
The “Ardyn” bunny:
You will need:
- A3 Bunny Pattern
- Cotton Balls
- A picture of your baby’s face
- Baby’s footprints done in pink paint. Cut out shape
- Pink paint
Cut out bunny pattern. Stick picture of your baby’s face on the face of the bunny in the pattern. Start from the outer edge and using your hot glue gun stick cotton balls on the paper. Use smaller pieces of cotton wool around the face. For the ears keep a part in the middle of the ears bare, so you can paint pink. Choose a box frame and Voila. You have your very own bunny!
You will need:
1.Piece of white cardboard
- Green cardboard
- Red cardboard
- Glue stick
- Baby’s hand print with yellow paint. Cut out shape
- Orange coloured pencil
Stick the cut out baby hand print, in the middle of the white cardboard. Cut out a piece of the green cardboard in the shape of a hill,and stick over the edge of the hand print. Cut out the shape of the cross using the red cardboard and stick on the middle of the hill. Use your orange coloured pencil to create sun rays on the outer edges of the hand print. There you go. Easy peasy. Laminate and frame.
