Preschool Handprint Craft: Bunch of Carrots (Great for Easter!)

Easter is just around the corner, and we’re up to our elbows in fun Easter crafts!

And when I say elbows, I mean elbows. 

Easter Handprint Craft: Bunch of Carrots!

 

I wanted a craft for the kids that said “Easter” in a way that would really fit our family. So, as usual, veggies win! We took the standard handprint craft idea one step further and made ARMprint carrots! A whole bunch of them to give to the grandparents on Sunday.

A fun handprint craft that uses your child's whole arm! A bunch of carrots, perfect for Easter.

They’re pretty self-explanatory, and I think they got better as we practiced. (This photo was our first attempt.) I think it’s really cute that we can not only look back at how little the kids’ hands were, but their whole arms, too! :) Silly, maybe. But fun.

Light lines with a Sharpie gave the carrots some definition, and a few raffia scraps tie through slits in the paper put the finishing touches on our carrot bouquet.

  12. Now, that’s a new take on the handprint craft! So inventive and creative – I love it and I am going to use it. My kids in the class I teach are going to be so excited – paint and they get to take home a bunch of carrots.
