With both spring and Mother’s Day just about here I not only LOVE flower crafts and projects but I also love child keepsakes to tuck away for in the future when I want to look back and reminisce how cute and tiny my kids once were. I always love looking for a new handprint craft for kids and I fell in love with this one because there’s NO MESS like the handprint paint versions! Plus it’s easy to frame or display and have as a keepsake! (You can find more ideas on our Handprint Pinterest board!) You could even use it as a bookmark if you wanted but I recommend laminating the handprint first!
Handprint Flowers Materials Needed:
Jumbo Craft Sticks
Construction Paper or Cardstock
Green Acrylic Paint
Handprint Flowers Directions:
1. Paint one jumbo craft stick green per flower desired.
2. Have your child place his/her hand flat onto the construction paper or card stock color of choice and trace their hand using your pencil.
3. Cut out the child’s handprint and 2 green leaf shapes per “flower”. You may need to trim down the paper near the “wrist” so that it fits on the craft stick better. (see photo for reference)
4. Paste the handprint “flower” and leaves onto the green “stem” (jumbo craft stick) and write the child’s name somewhere on it! Don’t forget to date it!
Personally I LOVE this specific art frame to display my children’s artwork and have several down my hallway for this reason!
