Okay, I’m pretty much down to the wire with this post, as Mother’s Day is in two days, but that is pretty much what I specialize in. For anybody else who is struggling to come up with a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, that you can throw together in less than an hour, but will still earn the total “Awwwww” factor on Sunday, well I am here for ya!

A few years ago, we made these adorable “Mother’s Day Bouquets” with handprints! I love handprint crafts and artwork, because they kind of “freeze time” for that year. They are sentimental and make a great keepsake, and they are the perfect way to get the little ones involved in “their” Mother’s Day gift.

For this Mother’s Day Bouquet You Will Need:

    Paper: Any kind. We used legal size for the extra length
    Paint: A few colors. My favorite is this Crayola Multi-Pack
    Paintbrush or Foam Brush
    Ribbon: About 8 inches
    Hole Puncher
    Toddler Hands

This artwork is pretty straightforward. We chose a few different color paints, and painted my son’s hands one at a time, one color at a time, and stamped them onto the paper to form a bouquet shape. I then went in after and swiped in some green “stems” coming from each handprint, and had them gather at the bottom. Depending on the age of your child, they may be able to paint their own stems. After the paint is dry, use a hole puncher to punch a hole on either side of the stems, and carefully pull your ribbon through, tying it in a bow on the front. You could also paint a bow on, but I loved the 3D effect of using an actual ribbon.
This is an easy craft to make multiples of at one time as well. Line up multiple sheets of paper and stamp each one with your child’s handprint before switching paint colors. Your child will then, not only have an adorable home-made gift to give away, but they will have one for you to keep too ;).

Another fun idea, is to use this bouquet to make a collective gift from a group of grandchildren! We made a bouquet that included my son’s hands and both of my nephews’ for my mom and grandmother. One of my nephews was only a few months old at the time, so we used his feet! You could actually make a whole bouquet of footprints that would be really adorable too.

You don’t have to be intimidated to have your kids make their own gifts. They don’t have to be complex or time-consuming, and can really be inexpensive to pull off. Plus home-made gifts are often the most touching in all of their toddler-made perfect imperfectness.

Happy Mother’s Day out there to ALL the mama’s!!! Whether your babies are grown, are still waking you up in the middle of the night, are four-legged and covered in fur (paw print bouquet!!!!), or belong to somebody else and you love them like your own, this weekend we celebrate YOU!!!


Happy Mother’s Day Mom!!!
