Easter is right around the corner, and it’s a great time to flex those crafting skills. Don’t make it too complicated! When working with kids, the simpler it is, the better. Less frustration for parents and kids that way! Make this finger paint Easter craft in four easy steps.

Simple Finger Paint Easter Craft

Y’all know I am all about the fun and easy ones, so nothing we do here will cost much money or make mom end up doing all of the work. I love to look at those pretty complicated crafts on Pinterest, but if it requires $30 worth of materials and 12 steps? Yeah, my girls will get bored after step 3, and I’ll end up making it by myself. No bueno.

Easter bunnies are so cute and perfect for the spring season! Let your kids make their own Easter bunny fingerprint craft with this easy DIY tutorial. #fingerprintcraft #craftsforkids #easter #holidaycraft

Supplies Needed

My simple finger paint craft is just that: simple. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cardstock
  • Image of a bunny, egg, cross, flower, etc.
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Paint

Yes. That’s it. You only need five items to make your little one’s masterpiece come to life.

5 Step Directions

Here is how to create your fun craft:

  • Cut out the image you want to decorate (just the outline). Tap it to the cardstock.
Dotting the Finger Paint Easter Craft
  • Encourage the little ones to “dot” the paint all around the edges of the image with their fingers.
Creating the Masterpiece
  • Let them go crazy with the rest of the paper (if they haven’t already immediately skipped to this step after step 1).
Working on Easter Fingerpaint Craft
  • Remove the outline and hang to dry!
Proud of their Artwork

The results are a unique piece of artwork that is both beautiful and fun. I see these being made for grandparents, aunts, uncles, basically anyone who loves your kids and aren’t afraid to hang their art on the fridge.

By the way, did you read the article on Scary Mommy about how Easter has turned into the “new Christmas?” I have a hard time grasping the justification for getting an Xbox in one’s Easter basket like the author does, but to each his own.

Make this easy, simple finger paint Easter craft with your kids. It only takes a few simple supplies, and it is endless hours of fun! #eastercraft #easterbunny #craftsforkids

We’ll probably just have a few candies and a new pair of pjs tucked into our girls’ baskets. Why pjs? Well, it began 2 years ago when I noticed the girls’ pjs were getting too small, and we needed to size up. Easter was the next small, gift-giving holiday, and thus a tradition was born.

We’ll see how long they want to keep up that tradition. What are your plans for Easter this year? However you spend the holiday, I hope it’s a joyous one!
