Let Kids Get Messy with Handprint Mother’s Day Art
Handprint art is a perfect way to capture fond memories of a child as they grow. Utilizing non-toxic paint, let kids get messy and use their hands to create all kinds of fun designs such as a flower, tree, or sun. Years from now moms can look back in amazement on how little their children used to be, and how fast they grew up! Here are some fun handprint art ideas to get you started:
Take it a step further and turn the art into the perfect Mother’s Day gift by adding one of these memorable quotes below:
• “I am like a flower that is raised with love by you. You help me grow up big and strong mom, thanks for all you do!”
• “Mother, you’ve given me two things, one is roots, and the other is wings.”
• “Mommy you always clean the handprints I leave upon the wall. I seem to make a mess of things because I am very small. The years will pass so quickly I’ll soon be grown like you and all the little handprints will surely fade from view. So here are special handprints…a memory that is true. So you’ll recall the very day I made this just for you!”
• “Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.”
• “You are my sunshine.”
Draw Their Favorite Memory with Mom
Using crayons, colored pencils, or paint, to let children draw their favorite memory with their mom. Perhaps it was the day they went to the beach together. Or perhaps it is when they enjoyed an ice cream cone together. Maybe their favorite memory is when their mom took them to the zoo to see the penguins. Or maybe it is something as simple as when mom reads their favorite bedtime story. Whatever their favorite memory of mom is, encourage them to express it in their art!
Let kids use their imagination to turn their mother into a superhero! Encourage them to consider what super power their mom would have and why. Does she magically heal wounds? Maybe her power is she has eyes in the back of her head. Whatever they come up with, let them go wild with their imagination to draw a unique scene of their superhero mom in action!
