Mother's Day Hand-Print Poem

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
