Hanging Handprint Flowers Mother's Day Card



The 2nd Handprint Mother's Day Craft we came up with was to use the handprints as the center of some pretty flowers that all hang on a strip of paper! You can add as many flowers as you want depending on how many little handprints you want to use! (We did 1 handprint per child, but you could also have each child do BOTH their hands.)

Supplies:
  • Paint
  • Cardstock
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker

Here's what you do:
  1. Using the paint, have the child/children make handprints on white cardstock.
  2. When the paint is dry, cut around the handprints in a circle to use as the center of the flower.
  3. Using a piece of scrapbook paper, draw simple flower shapes around the handprint centers and cut them out, and glue the handprints on.
  4. Write the names of the children on their handprints, and a message if you want. 
  5. Cut out strips of white cardstock and glue them together to make one long strip. Glue the flowers onto it.
  6. Add a piece of paper to the top with white cardstock on it and write "Happy Mother's Day!"
  7. If you want to, you can fold the strip in between the flowers so you can fit it inside a big envelope, or tied a ribbon around it to give to the special Mom you want to wish a very.....
Happy Mother's Day!







*P.S. The best finger paints around are by Crayola. They are the perfect consistency. Not too runny and not too thick. And best of all they are completely washable--and so easy to wipe off tables, fingers, and wash out of clothes. I HIGHLY recommend them for painting crafts with kids. 
And there is a great deal on Amazon right now to get a nice set of 12 different colors. In big bottles that you can use for a LONG time! Check it out!
