Handprint Flower Card

Mothers Day craft 1

What you need:

  • Paint
  • Paint brushes and/or sponge
  • Card


What to do:

  • You can do this in two ways: take a damp sponge and put it on a plate, apply a few squirts of paint and massage it into the sponge using a paint brush or your fingers to make sure the paint is worked through as much of the sponge as possible. Press your little one’s hand into the painted sponge one at a time. If you don’t have a sponge, you can paint their hands with a very thin layer of paint.
  • Gently press your child’s painted hand on the front of the card and let dry
  • Draw or paint a stem coming from the bottom of the handprint to look like a flower
  • Add a sweet message
