Mothers Day Activity – Handprint Flowers

We love this Mothers Day idea as it is a fun activity which all the little ones can take part in.

What you’ll need…
– butcher paper or card
– finger paints (assortment of colours)
– paint brushes or trays to pour paint into


What you’ll do…
1. Start by painting or drawing on a stem onto each piece of paper




2. Get each child to dip their hand into the paint (or paint directly onto their hand) and place their handprint on either side of the stem 





3. Repeat for other hand, placing handprints on alternate sides





4. Connect the handprints with green ‘stems’ to resemble a flower with petals

5. Finish it off with a cute message along the bottom, we chose: These are the hands you used to hold, when I was X years old. Happy Mothers Day!








Little things….you can add embellishments to the flower if you like – stickers, glitter, ribbons etc. will look great. (As I was dealing with a 3 year old boy he was pretty happy with adding only one ribbon!)
