This spring time chick and bunny handprint craft is perfect for celebrating Easter with kids.  

And the best part is that the paint is made of edible ingredients so it’s taste-safe, making this a great craft for kids of all ages.  

My five year old son had a blast making the paint and creating the puppets and my 11 month old baby even got to participate because I didn’t have to worry about him tasting the paint.
