Handprint Bunny Card:

  • Fold white cardstock over and put the left hand against the folded part.
  • Put your middle finger and index finger up like a piece sign. Trace around those fingers making it a bit bubblier so it will look like bunny ears, then trace around the side of the hand making a circle for the face.
  • Cut it out so that the bunny face is round like a circle. Leave a bit on the left side for the folded part so the card will open up.
  • Add two small pink cardstock inserts for the ears. Then glue on the googly eyes and pom poms nose.
  • Draw the whiskers and mouth on with a black marker

Sheep Handprint Card:

  • Fold a piece of black cardstock over. Trace the hand so that the wrist is at the folded part.
  • Draw a sheep head and cut it out and glue to the thumb. Make the head rounded with two ears coming down to the sides.
  • Glue on googly eyes to the head.
  • Add cotton balls to the sheep body.
  • Finally, add a small bow made from twine just under the body by the head.
