Mother’s Day is such a fun day for creating lasting memories through crafts. These Tulip Hand Prints are an easy craft that will allow you to capture your child at this moment in time. This craft is perfect for yourself or a very special grandma since children of all ages will have fun completing this Mother’s Day activity.
Our family lives on the west coast and we live on the east coast. For gifts I try to make easy to mail projects. Flowers created with paper last longer than a freshly delivered bouquet and have the cuteness factor that lasts forever.
Supplies to Create Tulip Hand Prints:
Paint – We use the Crayola Paint
Create Tulip Hand Prints:
I outlined a tulip stem and leaves with the pencil. My older daughter did a good job staying in the lines. I downsized her paintbrush after this photo.
The Tulip creation on the far left was done by my 3.5 year old, the one in the middle was done by my 2 year old and the one on the right has one of each of their handprints. This is an excellent way to preserve their little hands!
Preserve this craft project by laminating it or using Contact Paper (found at the Dollar Store). Or pick up an inexpensive frame and hang these hand print masterpieces on the wall for years to come!
