Mother’s Day Handprint and Fingerprint Craft Ideas

All Mom ever really wants for Mother’s Day is a homemade treasure from their children. My favorites are those crafts that incorporate handprints so that someday when my kidlets are all grown up I can remember those tiny little hands I used to hold daily and the fingerprints smudges that once ruled my household.

Check out our Mother’s Day Handprint and Fingerprint Craft Ideas below:

Below are a few of my all time favorite Mother’s Day craft ideas. These are all super easy and literally only require paint, construction paper, and of course your child’s hands. They all make a beautiful gift for a favorite Aunt, Mom, or Grandmother figure in your child’s life. You can use supplies you have at home or pick up supplies in the craft aisle at your local Walmart. 

The little red thumbprints are strawberries and you can top off the stems with a green star. You can trace your child’s hand and wrist, cut it out and then have the hand hold a construction paper bouquet of flowers. But my all time favorite is definitely the top photo shown on this page – what I call the Floral Handprint.

How to Make the Floral Handprint and Fingerprint Craft

1. Dip your child’s hand in paint and place it on top of a “Planter” on a piece of construction paper. The child can draw the pot or you can glue on construction paper. Whatever is easier or inspires you. The fingers on the handprint will form the stems of your flowers.

2. Dip your child’s thumbprints or fingerprints in paint. Switch colors for varied colored blooms. Create Petals and Individual flowers with each thumbprint.

3. Finish off the craft with this adorable sweet poem if you’d like:

I’ve made some May Flowers, with my fingers and thumbs, so you’ll have these memories in all the years to come. 

My kids Kenzie and Kyle have made the “Floral” Handprint with Thumbprint flowers many times. They always turn out adorable. Here are a few more examples of the same project and you can see how each time you make it – depending on the age of your child or their creative input, it is never the same. We made the below cards for my Mom, the kids Nana. Kenzie who was 6 has the more precise and careful card, while Kyle, who was 4 has a more wild creation!

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
