spring toddler craft

I wanted to make a fun spring craft with Hudson to send to some family members for Easter.  I don't do a lot of structured crafts with him since he is still uninterested in them.  This craft was made possible by my wonderful husband doing the painting with him while I took pictures.

Easter Thumbprint Flowers

I cut out small circles from scrapbook paper and glued them on some card stock.  Then, using my Clementine Paint, we dipped his thumb in the paint on the lid.

With Mike's help, Hudson put thumb prints around the circles to be the petals.  Lots of help needed here.  Hudson had a hard time keeping his thumb straight at first, but caught on quick.  I ended up turning the paper so Mike could concentrate on not getting paint everywhere. 

I then added stems and cut grass for the bottom.  This one is headed to my sister, Karen, to help brighten her day with some goodies for her last week in the hospital.
