DIY: Mother’s Day Printable Keepsake

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

    I love this! Does the jpeg print okay? It won’t turn out pixelated?

  9. Such a precious idea – love the shot of the little girl making her handprints:)
