Read on to learn Instructions with step-by-step pictures!
Step 1: Download the Handprint Art and Print
There are 8 Easter designs in the pack featuring Bunnies, chicks and Eggs. Print the ones you need.
We printed on 120 GSM printing paper.
If you plan to make handprint greeting cards, Print them on cardstock or photo paper.
Step 2: Paint the Child’s Hand
With the sheets ready, Paint the Child’s hand with Washable and Toxic-Free Tempera paint. We always use Crayola Washable paints.
A large Brush can speed up the process.
You can also use a Circular stamp pad if you want to cut the Painting Part!
A Toxic-free Stamp pad set with all colours is very expensive. However, these can save time and effort to a great extent.
Step 3: Make handprints
Before the paint dries, quickly and Firmly press the hand over the sheet. Press all over the hand including Fingers and remove the child’s hand from the paper.
Your Handprint art is ready!
Let the sheets Dry so you can add details with markers if necessary! The bunny and the chicks need face features.
For personal Touches, add the Date and Name!
There are some designs to capture a child’s footprint! Let the child sit on a chair so that painting on feet is easy! Repeat the Process as we did the handprint craft!
To be honest, Footprint crafts are not as easy as handprints and can get messy. So If you want to avoid footprints just use handprints for the same designs.
So this simple holiday Activity is a great way to make Keepsakes or a DIY greeting card that kids can gift to their loved ones. Perfect for both home and classrooms!

Tips and Tricks to Avoid a Mess
Painting with kids can be a lot of fun, but also a lot of mess. Before you start, it’s important to think through how to avoid the mess that often comes with painting projects.
Here are some tips on how to keep your space clean while still enjoying art time with your kids.
- First and foremost, lay down some newspaper or plastic drop cloths in an area where the paint won’t damage any furniture or flooring.
- Have a wet towel or Paper around to wipe in case any accident happens.
- While making handprint crafts, wash your hands before using a new colour
