Handprint projects are some of my favorite to do with the kids! I just love incorporating their handprints into crafts & art projects to help preserve memories of their little hands. Making handprint flowers is so easy & fun to do with the kids. Put them all together for some framed art and you have a perfect Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift for Mom, Grandma, or Auntie, or even just a lovely piece of spring artwork for the house!
Start by tracing the hands of the kids on different colors of construction paper (or colored card stock). For only 1 child, I’d cut out a few of their hands to make the artwork a little more colorful!
Once all the tracing is done, cut out all the hands. Also cut out some thin strips of green for stems and a few leaf shapes.
I used an 8×10 frame for our handprint flower creations. If you have more than 3 kids, you’ll probably want to go with a larger frame or at least flip the frame horizontally. Cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the frame your using. Then, arrange your cut handprints how you like, glue them down, and turn them into flowers by using the cut green strips & leaves.
This was so easy to do and the boys loved making it! It looks great on our mantel with our spring floral arrangement. For another easy spring flower gift idea, you could try this photo flower bouquet!
