Mother's Day "Thumb Bunny" Card



I was searching for a fun and simple gift to make with my nursery kids (age 18 months to 3 years) and I found this idea on-line at http://familyfun.go.com/mothers-day/mothers-day-cards-gifts/mothers-day-cards/thumb-bunny-card-662916/


The card on-line said "Some Bunny Loves You" on the front but I am going to be even more cheesy and put "Thumb Bunny Loves You" for a fun pun!

I will make the cards with the kiddos and then they can give the card to their mommies along with a bag of two cookies each (a cookie for mom and a cookie for the kiddo to eat together).


This could also be modified and used as a Teacher Appreciation card.

Thumb Bunny Card


As every parent knows, kids have a knack for leaving their fingerprints on everything. Now they can use this incredible skill to crank out a whole mess of adorable cards.

Materials Paintbrush
White acrylic paint
Paper plate
Colored card stock
Black and pink markers

Instructions Use the paintbrush to spread a thin layer of paint on the bottom of the paper plate -- this will be your ink pad.

Have your kids dip their thumbs into the paint and print them on the card. Their thumbprint will be the bunny's head. For the ears, have them press down only half of their thumb to make a long, skinny shape.

After the paint dries, they can decorate the face with markers, adding whiskers, eyes, and a nose.

Use a black marker to write "Some bunny loves you!" on the front of the card.

Tips: Even a really young child can make the thumbprints. A parent or an older child can offer to help out with the features and writing.
