This Mother’s Day hand print flower craft uses a few supplies and is best done with the help of a hot glue gun.

Hand Print Flower Craft

What you need:

  1. Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  2. Wooden round dowels
  3. Washable paints
  4. Construction paper


  1. Paint the wooden dowels with green paint and allow them to dry.
  2. While the dowels are drying, cut out green leaves with construction paper. I used a cookie cutter to make mine since I am not the best artist (pictured below).
  3. Have your child/children make a hand print on a piece of colored construction paper.
  4. Cut out the hand print.
  5. When the dowel is dry, hot glue the leaf to the dowel (flower stem) as well as the hand print.
  6. Optional: Include a cute note or poem on the flower’s leaf.

How cute is this craft? My kids really enjoyed it. The most time consuming part was letting the dowels dry. If you can find colored dowels, even better!
