    Making handprint and footprint crafts is one of my favorite activities to do with my daughter around the holidays. She is not so thrilled about having paint put on her hands and feet, but I love the beautiful results for which I have also created a scrapbook. Making a bunny, carrot, and chick print craft is a fun activity for celebrating Easter. Just make sure to put the footprints in the right direction! (I messed up the first time and had to start the craft over again, much to the chagrin of my daughter.) Happy Easter!
