    Fingerprints are the stars of this project. And since there's no right or wrong way to finish this Easter craft, you can let your child go crazy with those tiny fingerprints in white non-toxic acrylic paint for fingerprint bunnies and yellow non-toxic acrylic paint for fingerprint chicks. The only other supplies you need are construction paper, crayons, a paper plate and baby wipes to get those soon-to-be messy hands clean.
