Handprint Flower Scene Mother's Day Card



The 4th and final idea for using the handprints in a Mother's Day card is this: A fun scene where the 2 boys' handprints are the tulips and sweet baby's handprint is the sun! 
You could even have one child do all the handprints, or make even more flowers on a bigger piece of paper!
Many fun possibilities. 

Supplies:
  • Paint
  • Cardstock
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers

Here's what you do:
  1. Using the paint, have the child/children stamp their handprints on cardstock.
  2. When the paint is dry, cut out 1 handprint (preferably a yellow one) to be the sun. Cut around the other handprints in the shape of tulips.
  3. Glue them on pieces of scrapbook paper and cut around them in bigger sun and tulip shapes.
  4. Glue them together, then glue them onto a piece of cardstock or other big paper.
  5. Add sun rays with a yellow marker
  6. Add stems to the tulips with a greenish scrapbook paper.
  7. You can leave it as a big piece of paper, or fold it up into a card and decorate the front if you wish.
  8. Write your messages on the paper to wish a lovely mom you know 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!
