My 5-year old’s preschool teacher is a very creative person. She comes up with all sorts of amazing crafts for the kids to make. Among others, they celebrate each month with a special handprint craft.

When Mother’s Day comes, I receive all those lovely handprints gathered up in a nice folder. I really look forward to this special gift.

This inspired me to put together a collection of adorable Mother’s Day handprint gifts that kids can make for their mothers and grandmothers.


Mother’s Day handprint gifts

Handprint mason jar vase – This is such a thrifty yet cute gift that teachers can make in the classroom with their students. Use two chalk painting colors and clear finishing spray.

Handprint potholders – These potholders are another simple project to tackle in the classroom. Use white potholders so the handprints can stand out. Add flowers or butterflies around the handprints. Hearts are a nice elements to add, too.

Handprint apron – If mom or grandma has a green thumb, make her an adorable garden apron. If not, make her an apron to use in the kitchen. She spends there a lot of her time, I’m sure. You can use fabric paint to ensure that mom or grandma will have the apron for years. Otherwise, you can surprise her every year with another apron with a new design.

Handprint bowl keepsake – If you enjoy crafting with salt dough, this is a project for you. This handprint dish is perfect for mom to keep rings or keys. I personally love to make and receive practical gifts.

Handprint bookmarks – These bookmarks are so easy to make. All you need is craft sticks and paper for the handprints and leaves. A super cute gift you can make in 10 minutes.

Handprint tulip towels   – If you need a budget gift idea for mom or grandma, look no further than these flower dish towels. Use fabric paint so the towels can be washed without loosing the little one’s handprint.

Handprint flower pot – I not only love the flowerpot itself but also the paper flower with the kid’s face in the middle. What a brilliant idea to brighten up mum’s special day.

Mommy has my heart platter – Make a beautiful platter at a local ceramic studio or use ceramic paint at home. Make a platter for grandma too: “Grandma has my heart”
