Start by scrolling to the bottom of the post, under the terms of use, and click on the text link that says >> Download <<. The pdf file will open in a new window for you to save the freebie. Print the black and white sheet on plain white paper.

Next, color the flowers and flower centers. You can use crayons, markers, colored pencils, gel pens, or watercolor paints. We suggest using pretty spring colors for the flowers like pink, purple, yellow, orange, blue, red, and similar.

Now, cut the flowers and circles out and set the template pieces aside.

Mothers Day Flower Craft

Trace the child’s hand onto a piece of construction paper and then cut it out.

With the thumb facing upwards, put some glue on the back of the palm and arm. Don’t put any glue on the fingers.

Glue the hand onto the paper, being sure to leave plenty of room at the top of the paper for the stems and flowers.

Use tacky glue to attach the green chenille stems onto just the palm of the hand. Press and hold for a moment to help the glue adhere.

Next, glue the flowers to the tops of the chenille stems. This will also help hold the stems down. Glue the flower centers onto the flowers in the correct order, making sure it says, “Happy Mother’s Day!”

Now it’s time to make the hand “hold” the flowers. Use tacky glue to put a dot on the finger tips, and then curve them around the stems. Press and hold them down for a bit to help the glue stick.
