What Age Are These Mothers Day Handprint Cards Suitable For?
Because these cards are make from a sheet of paper or cardstock folded in half they are most suitable for younger kids because of the area available for their handprints.
I would recommend using these cards for kids aged between one and three, but you may find that some slightly older kids are able to use these too, it will of course just depend on their size!
For comparison, the first image below is done with a handprint from a one year old while the second child’s handprint was made by a three and a half year old.

Flower Pot Handprint Card
Making these cards is so simple! the first thing you need to do is choose the template that you want and print it onto white cardstock.
Use cardstock rather than paper if possible because it is less likely to become saturated from the paint and also means that your card will be able to stand up more easily.
Take your child’s hand and cover it in paint. You can do this by pouring some paint onto a plate and dipping their hand into it but I normally find that the best results come from using a paintbrush and painting their hand instead.
Another option is the paint pads which are created especially for handprint crafts and finger painting. We’ve used these before at a Sunday school session and thought they were fantastic!
Carefully place your child’s hand down onto the card so that their handprint forms the flower shape. Sometimes I find that it’s good to have a practice go with this if I think my kids are going to get worried about doing something wrong or if you just want to check out the best way to do it.
While you don’t need to have a cloth or wipes for this craft, you could just get your child to go straight to wash their hands afterwards, I think they’re a really useful thing to have to hand.
This definitely comes under the heading of ‘better to have and not need than to need and not have’ so that you can quickly get the most of the mess off paint covered hands if you need to.
Once your flower handprint is dry you can fold your card in half and write a sweet message inside or you could look for some Mother’s Day poems to add.
