One of my favorite past Mother's Day crafts is this flower pot handprint craft I made with my son when he was younger. It was based of this one that we made when he was 1 that also had a cute poem on it for Mother's Day. I knew my daughter would love making one with her little hands (she loves handprint art!) and since both those posts are popular this time of year, I thought I'd make a free printable version to share with all of you! You can get your free printable flower pot craft for Mother's Day template at the end of this post.
I just adore the poem! It reads:
Look at me,
It isn't showing.
You can't see it,
But I'm growing!
Here is the one I made with my daughter who is 3 yrs old.
We placed 2 green handprints on top of the printed flower pot with the thumbs s ticking outwards. We used ink and her thumb to make the flowers. The centers are made with fingerprints of gold glitter glue. Little Sister saw Big Brother flipping through a sticker pad searching for flowers and happened to see a page of fairies. Of course she wanted to put all of them on!
We made my son's a little different. Instead of using the whole hand, he just painted his fingers and made 2 prints with them. He decorated the tops of the stems with stickers and a flower stencil. He also added butterflies and a little drawing of himself.
I ran a draft print of the PDF I created so gave those to them to color and decorate their own designs without handprints.

* Please note that there are 2 pages each with a different sized flower pot to suit different ages.
We would love to see your finished craft! We welcome your photo or link on our Facebook page. Thanks for sharing!
