You can make as big a bouquet as you like with Mom's favorite colors. This is a good Mother's Day craft for kids to do that results in a gift for Mom that she is sure to love!

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper (many colors)
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape
  • Glue
  • Pencil, Crayons, Markers
  • Green straws (optional)
How to make your Handprint Flowers Mother's Day Gift:
  • Trace your child's hand on the construction paper. Make sure that you trace a little bit of the wrist as well.
  • Cut out the handprint.
  • Use a pencil or marker and roll each finger around it to create some curl.
  • Lay the handprint on the table so the fingers curl out towards the table. Pick up the flower, wrap it around, and tape the ends together at the wrist section.
  • To make the stem either tape end of the flower around a green straw, or tightly roll a piece of green construction paper and tape or glue the flower to that.
  • Cut leaves out of green construction paper and tape or glue to the stem (if using a straw, tape works better than glue).
  • Make as many as you like and give them to Mom on her special day!
