Mother's Day Craft

Now I know that Mother’s Day is over, but I didn’t want to post this beforehand since Hailey was giving this project as a gift to her grandmothers. It’s really cute though, so I still want to post it and maybe you’ll like it enough to tuck it away for next year.

Mother’s Day Hand-print Poem

What You’ll Need:
Two Paper Plates
Skin Tone Paper
Pink Card Stock
Washable Paint
Assorted Ribbon, Lace and Silk Flowers


Spread paint in one paper plate. Press the child’s hand into the paint and on to card stock to make hand-print.  Trace around the hand and cut out.  Allow child to paint the other paper plate.  Print poem on pink card stock. Cut out in the shape of a heart. Decorate the edge of the paper plate with flowers, ribbon and/or lace. Cut a 30″ piece of ribbon make a loop in one end. Glue to the back of the plate with a loop at the top for a hanger. Glue the heart poem to the bottom of the ribbon under the hand-print as shown in photo (below). Add a bow to decorate.

The poem that I used says:
Someday I will be big
And gone upon my way
But here’s my little hand-print
To remind you
of this day
