Painting Mess Free

My sister did this with her kids for Easter. So Cute!

  • Canvas
  • Paints
  • Plastic wrap
  • Newspaper
  • Paint brush 
  • Black permanent marker


  1. Have all of your materials out and ready to use. Put the canvas on newspaper.
  2. Squirt dots of paint on the canvas.
  3. Place plastic wrap on top of the paint and wrap it around the edges of the canvas.
  4. Let your child rub the paint around. Having the plastic wrap over the paints makes this safe and mess free for little fingers.
  5. After the canvas is all painted, peal the plastic wrap off and let it dry.
  6. To make the bunny footprints, have your child sit in a chair with clean feet.
  7. Paint one foot with white paint. Make sure it is thick so you get the whole footprint.
  8. Stamp the foot on the canvas so their toes are pointing down and there is space for the ears above the heal.
  9. Do the last 2 steps with the other foot or another child's foot. If you have more kids just add 1 foot for each of them.
  10. To add the ears to each bunny, use a paint brush to paint the white long ears first. After that drys a little, add a center pink stripe for the inside of the ears. Use that same pink paint and add a small dot in the center of the heal for the bunny nose.
  11. Once all of the paint is dry you can add the details. Use the black permanent marker to draw a face, write Happy Easter, and add names and ages by each foot.
  12. Hang your canvas and cherish those little toes or you could even give this as a gift.
  • You could do the mess free painting for any occasion and with any colors of paint. 
  • If you do hand or foot prints be ready to clean them off between each. 
  • If your canvas is small enough you could put it into a zip lock bag for the mess free painting.
