20 Handprint and Footprint Crafts for Mother’s Day

By  | Last Updated:  

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.
