Handprint Circles Mother's Day Card



The 3rd idea for using handprints in a Mother's Day Card is this Circle Card! It's a fun,easy, and interactive way to display each child's handprint individually, or you could use 2 handprints per child and write different messages on them!

Supplies:
  • Paint
  • Cardstock
  • Scrapbook paper
  • 1 brad
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker

Here's what you do:
  1. Using the paint, have the child/children stamp their handprints on the cardstock.
  2. When it's dry, cut around the handprints in a circle
  3. Glue the circle handprints onto pieces of scrapbook paper and cut around them in bigger circles.
  4. Place them all on top of each other, with the smallest ones on top and place a brad through the tops of all the paper circles.
  5. Write your messages on with the marker wishing a special mom in your life 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!
