This year for Mom you may want to make your gift reflect something she dearly loves- the hand prints of those who are closest to her. This is especially true if Mom is surrounded by little people with little hand prints that will one day be big. By making her one of these special hand print Mother’s Day crafts Mom can have a special memento that catches in time the hand prints of her littlest ones for the years to come. So if you are looking for a unique way to honor Mom this year and give her a gift she will cherish you may want to consider making her one of these hand print Mother’s Day crafts-
A Special Canvas Bag-This can be a very messy project so if kids are making this adult supervision is recommended.
Canvas Tote Bag
Instructions for the project: Paint one of your hands (or the child’s hands) with fabric paint and “stamp” the handprint onto the tote bag. By keeping the fingers together it looks somewhat like a tulip. You can then add leaves and a stem with paint. For a finishing touch write Happy Mother’s Day (or other appropriate message) with the year at the top of the bag with the markers and sign your name. These can take a while to dry well so make sure you allow enough time.
