handprint flower

We’ve got a few more Mother’s Day gift ideas up our sleeve before the big day this weekend, and this one is a classic: the handprint flower! We love fresh flowers, but these will last a lot longer and will always be a reminder of your kids each year. Make a whole bouquet for a print or card and you’ve got yourself a beautiful, thoughtful and easy gift.

Handprint Flower - Mother's Day

No surprise here, but kids love to make these prints! First, cover their little hands with paint:

Create the flower by spreading out each finger:

Clean hands and add stems:

And hang it up!
