Springtime Craft: Handprint flowers

Family / Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

I love Springtime and am SO ready for it this year!  I don’t know about you but I am ready for bright colors, flowers, sunshine and lots of outside time.

Here is a fun springtime activity for your family to do, this could even be done on a warmer day outside…

Handprint flowers

First, Let the child choose a piece of white paper or even construction paper. Then, paint one of their hands with any color they choose, and place it onto the paper. This will be your flower or the stem based on what you are making.

For example: If the child just wants to do flowers as if they are in a garden, then they could do 1-3 handprints.

Then, take a green or brown marker or paintbrush (or they can use their finger) to create stems, and then use green paint to add leaves.

Another example: They could use their single handprint to make a stem base. Then take their fingerprints and make flower petals around the tips of the fingers to create flowers. Next, you could cut a trapezoid shape from a piece of construction paper to make a flower pot and glue it over the bottom of stem to make it look like it’s in the pot. From here you can add a message or poem.

Very cute, fun, springtime craft for the kids. Plus, it makes a great gift for the parents and grandparents as many love keeping handprint or footprint art.

Supplies you’ll need:


White paper and/or construction paper

Child’s hand and fingers

Paint brush





Enjoy having fun making memories!
