Favorite Mother’s Day Handprint and Footprint Crafts
When my children were young, I always enjoyed receiving crafts made from their little hands and feet. They usually made them at school and brought them home for Mother’s Day. Now that I’m a grandmother, I once again love receiving those special presents.
Our first grandchild was born in July of 2013. For Christmas that year, we received a special little handprint ornament. I was lucky enough to be there when my daughter and grandson were making them. Even at 5 months old, he enjoyed making crafts. My daughter said she got the idea from the post, “Salt Dough Handprint Ornaments” by Olive Juice Mama.
With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought I would share some of my favorite handprint and footprint crafts (hint, hint to my daughter).
Even though this craft was listed as an Easter craft, I thought the handprint bouquet would be perfect for Mother’s Day. I found this craft on Pinkie for Pink.
I fell in love with these footprint butterflies the first time I laid my eyes on them. I especially like that they are created on a canvas so they can be hung on the wall. These came from Project Balancing Act.
I love the outdoors, especially in spring. This apron reminds me of a warm spring day, and it’s decorated with handprint flowers and a footprint butterfly. I found it on Little Page Turners’ blog.
I thought using fingerprints to create these hyacinths was genius. Aren’t they adorable? This came from Dali’s Moustache.
If you like jewelry, these fingerprint pendants are perfect. You can have a piece of your little one with you wherever you go. Don’t forget to put the child’s name and date on the back. I found this craft on A Girl and a Glue Gun.
If you have a passion for working in the dirt, planting flowers, vegetables or herbs’ then I bet you would love to receive this special little flower pot. This came from Michellan.
Here is another special canvas piece. It’s the word “love” made with your little one’s handprints and footprints. This came from Country & Victorian Times.
What grandmother wouldn’t love this piece of art?! I just need it to say Mama instead of Grandma. I found this on I Watch Them Grow.
I hope you enjoyed some of these special crafts. If you are now a grandparent, share this post with your children and give them a hint as to which items you would love to receive for Mother’s Day. I would accept any of them, with great joy. Which one is your favorite?
