Baby Handprints Forever
Normal

Mother's Day is this weekend and if you haven't made your gift yet we have a creative way to make your mom smile. All you need is a poster board, paint, a marker, and a frame.

If you are making this for mother's day you will need to get your mom's print first so she doesn't know what it's for. If you are not giving this as a gift then go with the largest hand first. I used white card stock from Michaels and cut it out to fit the frame I purchased. The number of hands in your family will determine the size of the frame.

I painted my husband's hand, mine, and the two babies with non-toxic black paint then pressed everyone's hand down on a pre-cut piece of white card stock. The little one is only 6 months so that was a bit of a process : ) I love blobby baby hands!

Once all your hands are dry you can use a marker to draw the plus and equal sign and don't forget to write the names and date it! 

We did this craft for Brooke Burke's website Modernmom.com ~ To see it click here:

Happy Mother's Day from my family to yours : )
