Toddler art {Mother's Day gift}

Mothers day

Pin It

This project couldn't be easier, cheaper, or more adorable...and BONUS! fits right inside the cards Leila got for her Grandmas and her Great-Baba.

craft stick
green pipe cleaner
Sharpie or other kind of marker
white glue
stickers (optional)
  1. Paint your child's hand and carefully press it onto the paper. Let it dry before you cut around the outline of the handprint.
  2. Paint the craft stick green to look like a stem.  I used a sponge-like paint brush but fingers, Q-tips, or a regular paint brush will do the trick.  Set it aside to dry.
  3. Put glue on the back of the handprint flower and position it onto the painted craft stick.  I wanted mine were short enough to fit nicely into the card/envelope I was mailing.  Lay the flower flat to dry.
  4. Make a small loop on one end of the pipe cleaner to look like a leaf and secure it to itself.  Wrap the long end of the pipe cleaner around the painted craft stick, make a loop for another leaf and tuck the remaining part of the pipe cleaner into itself.  (You can also use paper to make leaves. Melissa suggested making green footprints for leaves!)
  5. Add the year, a message, and stickers if you'd like.
Happy Mother's Day!
