Easy Handprint Flowers

My daughter, Sydney loves getting dirty. When I told her we were going to do a craft that involved painting her hand, she literally squealed with delight. Messy? Paint? Sounds like the perfect craft!

We started by simply picking the color of the flower we wanted to do. She picked yellow.

Start by carefully applying paint to your child’s hand.

Then place their hand down on the paper

leaving a little space between each finger…

Then, have them carefully remove their hand

and repeat (as carefully as then can) in a circle to create their flower (as you can see, Sydney got a little excited during this part)…

After the flower bloom dries, have them (or assist) paint a stem on their flower. Then, cut a couple of petals out of scrap-booking paper and after the stem has dried, have them glue the petals on.

A simple and a wonderful craft that involves multi media and mess…

the perfect combination!

Our final step? The center, of course! Thinking of getting some sunflower seeds for her to glue in the middle. A multi media extravaganza! Or, maybe birdseed? Any suggestions?

Have a great day everybody!  Oh, and a little more about me?  My name is Jessica!  I left my job to pursue my dream: changing diapers, cleaning the house, doing dishes, getting tons of sticky kisses, teaching and exploring with my two girls on the New England coast. I enjoy sharing my life – crafting, creating, parenting, venting and cooking on my blog Barefoot by the Sea.
