20 Handprint and Footprint Crafts for Mother’s Day
Did you know that all of those dirty marks on your walls from grubby little hand and footprints could be beautiful? Yup. It’s all a matter of perspective; if you use those same little digits to leave their mark on a canvas or some other medium, you create artwork.
Grandma will love the kids’ handprint/footprint craft masterpieces for Mother’s Day and even if you don’t quite appreciate prints on the wall, you will get misty eyed over them someday. So — make a version to keep for yourself, too!
Be inspired by these terrific keepsakes that all begin with small handprints and footprints: cards, garland; flowers, flower pots, flower mugs, and flower magnet clips; heart art (more than one version); charms; an apron, dish towels; a license plate tag; and stepping stones.
