Here is one of the easiest but most beautiful and meaningful Mother's Day Crafts you will ever find. It looks complicated and does take a little time, but I'm confident even the most craft-deficient dad or grandparent can pull this one off!
- A piece of background paper
- A piece of computer paper
- Some green paper
- A pencil
- Crayons/colored pencils/chalk (optional)
I let the kids color their egg (this step is optional)
Fold the piece of computer paper into quarters (flashback to school: fold it "hot dog style" then "hamburger style")
Trace your child's hand with fingers spread onto the folded paper and cut it out (you should end up with 4 hand prints)
Roll each handprint's palm into a cone (fingers facing up) and tape
Use the pencil to curl each finger by wrapping each finger around the pencil and rolling it down to the palm
Cut strips from the green paper for stems and leaf shapes (optional)
Glue (or have your child do it if old enough) the hand flowers, stems and leaves onto the background paper.
Done! (These show are completely kid-made. For a more traditional parentmade version, here was our inspiration)
