Today, I've got something truly special and adorable to share with you all, a DIY Clay Bunny Handprint Keepsake that will melt your heart!

You know those precious little handprints that seem to capture a moment in time, freezing it forever? Well, imagine turning one of those handprints into the sweetest little bunny you ever did see! Yes, it's possible, and yes, it's as cute as it sounds.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Air-dry clay (the magical ingredient!)

  • Paints in your favorite colors

  • A paintbrush

  • Googly eyes (or drawn-on eyes if you prefer)

  • A tiny pom-pom for the nose

  • And a dash of creativity!

Here's how you create it:

Step 1: Roll out your air-dry clay into a smooth, flat surface. Make sure it's large enough to accommodate your little one's handprint.

Step 2: Press your child's hand firmly into the clay, leaving behind a perfect impression. But here's where the magic happens – gently separate the fingers between the middle and ring finger to create those iconic bunny ears. Voila! You've got the outline of a bunny already taking shape.

Step 3: Let your clay creation dry completely. This step requires some patience, but trust me, the end result will be worth it!

Step 4: Once your bunny handprint has dried, it's time to add some color! Paint the bunny's ears in a soft pastel shade – think pink, blue, or mint green. Let your little one's personality shine through in the color choice!

Step 5: Now, it's time to bring your bunny to life! Glue on those googly eyes (or draw them on if you prefer), attach a tiny pom-pom or button for the nose, and add some whiskers with a fine-tip paintbrush.

Step 6: Display your DIY Clay Bunny Handprint Keepsake proudly for all to see OR do what we did, and gift them. It's a precious memento that captures a moment in time and celebrates the joy of motherhood in the most whimsical way possible.

So there you have it, my fellow DIY mavens – a simple yet utterly charming project that's sure to warm your heart and bring a smile to your face every time you look at it. Until next time, keep crafting and spreading love and joy wherever you go!

With love and whimsy, Kara
