I realize I haven’t been around much lately. Hopefully that will change next week. We are moving this weekend- and have to stay with my parents for a few weeks before our new house closes. So, I am hoping to get back into doing crafts everyday with Hailey once we are settled in at my parents house.
In case you are looking for a fun Mother’s Day idea, here is what we made last year.
What You’ll Need: Two Paper Plates, Poem, Paint, Skin Tone Paper, Pink Card Stock, Washable Paint, Assorted Ribbon, Lace and Silk Flowers, Glue and Scissors.
Directions: 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 finished Mother’s Day Hand-print Poem
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
