It’s the Easter weekend! Festivities may look a little different for you and your family this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate just the same. We had so much fun getting creative with an ink pad – you need next to nothing to make this fun art project. Turn these little guys into cards, secret notes, Easter basket labels, wrapping paper, or even a garland. However you use them, we’re sure that they’ll add some cheer to your family’s Easter celebrations. Keep reading for all our tips and tricks below.
what you need:
- Ink pad
- Fine-tip markers
For the chicks:
Press your finger or thumb into the yellow ink pad and stamp onto your white paper. Use an orange marker to draw two little feet and a beak. Use yellow marker to draw swings and a feathery sprout of hair on top. Finally use a black marker to draw two little eyes.
For the Easter eggs:
Press your finger or thumb into any color of ink and stamp onto white paper. Use matching or contrasting marker to draw little details onto the eggs: stripes, dots, waves, and zig zags all look great!
For the flowers:
Press your finger into any color on the ink pad and stamp onto the paper. Repeat with the same color of ink four more times, stamping the five petals for your flower. Wash your finger and press it into another color. Stamp this into the center of the flower. Use a black marker to draw a little face on! You can also make bigger or smaller flowers by simply adding more or fewer petals.
For the bunnies:
Press your finger into any color on the ink pad – we used pink and blue – and stamp onto your white paper. Use a matching marker to draw two long ears onto the bunny’s head. Draw on two eyes and a little x for the nose and mouth with a black marker. Did you know that bunnies’ ears show their mood? Make them both straight, one bent over, or both down for a lopped ear bunny. So cute!
