Need a quick way to send some love to your family? You still have time to recruit your child to make Easter extra special! These Easter cards took less than a day and my 2 1/2 year old was delighted to make a mess with paint!
I used some pre-purchased plain white cards (the same ones I’ve used for St. Patty’s Day cards and sewn Birthday cards – it was a smart purchase!) I had paint in my craft closet and cardstock in my office. We were all set!
For the first step, I had my son paint on the front of each card.
This quickly diminished into finger painting but made it more fun too!
Since his hands were covered, we made him stamp the back of each card as a signature. He landed about a 30% success rate on this part.
Then we let all the cards dry. This was the longest part of the whole process. Some cards were pretty soaked with paint! While they dried, I used a cookie cutter to trace the egg shape onto cardstock (cut to the size of the front of a card) and cut those out.
We wrote Happy Easter on each one and started gluing them to the front of cards. We made ten total and were able to mail them the next morning!
We hope you enjoy great time with family this weekend and try some new fun crafty projects! And Tracy and I wish you all a:
