Ruth Ann, a blog reader, sent in these simply adorable handprint ideas to share with all of you. They are perfect crafts for kids to make moms & dads. Her ideas make cute gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and even Valentine’s Day….. enjoy!
Dad or Mom’s tee shirt – Have the child to put the handprints where they would be placed if he was hugging his parent. On the front or back, it might be cute to write “I love you ______ inches!”
Make a picture of a flower pot – the palm & fingers will be flower stems.
- Place a kisses candy at top of each finger for the flower. Write “Mom/Dad I ‘m growing kisses just for you!” Or you could……
- Place 4-5 sunflower seeds on the fingers and write “I love you…from _______your son”.
Handprint sunshine – The hands could be placed to make the sun. The palms are the center and the fingers represent the rays. “I want to be the your sunshine always!” (now, today, forever). Place a picture of the child below this.
