Finding time to craft has become more and more challenging lately, but I was happy to do something and to do it with my mom, sister, niece and son! Since we were just at the beach, we utilized the time the lil ones were together and made my mom a lil belated Mother’s Day gift from her grandkids. I’m into putting handprints and footprints on anything right now to remember how little they are and she loved gardening, so I thought a handprint flower pot would be perfect on her porch. It’s a great and easy gift for anyone who loves plants!

Handprint Flower Pot

What you’ll need:

  • Flower pot (I found a cute one at our local nursery, Abide-a-while)
  • White paint (we used acrylic)
  • Foam brush
  • Wipes
  • Clear sealer spray

It’s a pretty simple idea: Paint a hand and place it on the pot. Repeat for each little one, making your way around the pot. Add names & the year. For best results, also spray a matte, clear sealer on top.

There aren’t any in progress photos since it’s hard enough to get 2 under 2 to participate in a craft, let alone document it haha. Once my mom got home, she filled it and added it to her porch.

It’s not the overwhelming bright kid crafts that you normally see, but still documents their cute little hands and was a fun activity to do together.

Hooray for some craft time!
