Spring is here, and so are the delightful handprint flower craft ideas for kids. Get ready to gift the cutest handprint paper flowers!
With Mother’s day approaching quickly, we want to hand out a handmade bouquet to mom or grandma that they wouldn’t expect.
Handprint Flower Craft for Kids
The best part is this flower handprint art for kids is really easy and fun to do!
Right now, I think easy is best after being stuck in the house for so long. My kids enjoyed making these mother’s day handprint flowers. Especially my little girl. She loves to pick flowers for mommy!
Instead, this year, she made me a handprint flower craft! Now, we want to help your children create some too!
However, there are a few things you’ll need.
- Construction paper (Check Amazon’s price here!)
- Flower Pots
- Pen or Pencil
Spring Flower Crafts
Flower art is the perfect activity for preschoolers or elementary students.
However, my kids range from two to fourteen, and they all enjoyed the handprint flowers mothers day craft.
It just depends on the child and personality.
My teen daughter turned her handprints into tye-dye flowers and then used her toddler brother’s hands to create smaller handprint flowers to add to her bouquet. It turned out pretty cool.
With that said, in this post, I use the handprint flowers my eight-year-old daughter has made.
First, you will need to lay your construction paper on a flat surface.
Second, take your pen or pencil and trace your handprint.
Third, use scissors and cut out the handprint. Keep in mind that toddlers or younger children will need help cutting out the hand flowers.
Once the hand is completely cut out, let your child draw anything they want on their flower.
After they are done coloring their handprint paper flowers, you’ll need to cut the leaves out of green construction paper.
Next, glue your hands and leaves to the stick of choice. We used a straw. However, you could use a stick too.
Lastly, after your flowers are dry, add them to a small flower pot, and that’s it. You will have yourself a handprint flower bouquet.
It’s cute and memorable, and moms and grandmas everywhere will love them. Also, learn how to make handprint roses or Sunflowers!
We hope you enjoyed learning how to make kids handprint flowers! If you don’t want to decorate them with crayons, you could easily use washable glue, make a flower with a handprint, cut it out, and use it.
Either way, this handmade gift will be a wonderful keepsake. I know I would love flowers out of handprints, and there are so many moms and grandmas that will too!
Next, find out how you can wear flamingos on your feet! This craft idea is hilarious to do in the summer!
