Some of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts have been those that capture just how little my kids are. My grandmother is always reminding me how quickly our children will grow. Once they are school-age, there is no shortage of cute little art project gifts, but before then, it’s up to us to help create these sweet keepsakes! Every year I try to create a seasonal craft the kids can do that features their handprints so I will always have reminders of the little hands I once held. Today I want to share a sweet Mother’s Day printable keepsake with all of you.
Materials: free printable Mother’s Day template, letter size paper (8½ x 11″), non-toxic paint, paint brush
Download the free template, and print out on letter size paper. You can add the date if you want.
Brush your child’s palms with the paint of your choice, and press their hands into the center of the design.
Allow the paint to dry overnight, and voilà! You have a sweet art print of your child’s little hands.
You can frame your print or tuck it into a scrapbook. This Mother’s Day printable keepsake would make a great gift for grandma too! Soon you will look back and realize just how quickly they’ve grown.
