Connor and Amelia helped me make these handprint flowers for Mother’s Day. We gave them to my mom, their memere, but now I wish I had made more!
We used some card stock that I happened to have on hand. It had a bit of a sheen to it, while that wasn’t what I was looking for, kind of gave the flowers a nice shimmer.
I let both kiddos pick out their colors from my collection of acrylic craft paint. While I was not surprised that Amelia picked pink, I was surprised that Connor picked purple! I added some yellow thumbprints to make the middles!
I had the kids just go to town making handprints all over a few sheets of card stock after I painted on a nice thick layer of paint on their hands. Then I cut them out and assembled them with a pretty thick layer of rubber cement. They look so sweet. I was kind of sad to give them away! The kids were very proud and loved giving them to memere!
