Mother’s Day is always a special day of the year where every mom deserves major credit!  Treat your mama right and follow these easy steps to make an adorable craft to hang on the refrigerator to show your mom how much you LOVE and appreciate her!

Time to Make: 20-25 minutes

What you will need:

  • 2 white paper plates
  • Non-Toxic Paint (any color your child loves)
  • Pen Marker (any color you like!)
  • Hole puncher
  • 6 inches of yarn (or any string of your choice)

Steps:

  1. Take a blank white paper plate and turn it upside down
  2. Take any color pen marker and (have an adult) write the following poem, or any poem that your child may choose:
  3. I miss you when you we’re not together
    I’m growing up so fast
    See how big I’ve gotten
    Since you saw me last?
    As I grow, I’ll change a lot,
    The years will fly right by.
    You’ll wonder how I grew so quickly
    When and where and why?
    So look upon this handprint
    That’s hanging on your wall.
    And memories will come back for me,
    When I was very small!

    Love,
    XXX (child’s name)

  4. Place a big dollop of paint on your 2nd white paper plate.
  5. Take your child’s left or right hand (palm facing down) and with your child’s fingers spread wide, place into the dollop of paint
  6. Make sure that the palm of your child’s hand is fully covered with the paint of his/her choice!
  7. Take your original first plate with the poem and make sure it is turned right side up!
  8. Place your child’s hand that is covered in paint onto the middle of the plate to make a handprint.
  9. Let the plate dry for 20-25 minutes
  10. Use your hole puncher to make a hole at the top of the front side of the plate (about ½ inch from the edge).
  11. String the yarn through the hole and tie a knot.
  12. Voila and enjoy!  Any mommy can now hang her plate with joy on her refrigerator or wall in your home.

PS – Don’t forget to give your mom a BIG hug and kiss and say I LOVE YOU! One of the best gifts of all. 😉
