Mother’s Day Construction Paper Flowers
Mom’s love flowers, that’s just the way it is. So when Mother’s Day rolls around, it only makes sense to get them flowers. I opted to have Miss O make a flower that would last forever in the form of these construction paper flowers. They include a sweet little photo of Grandma’s favourite girl and a little poem to boot but I think my favourite part is the inclusion of handprints and footprints! I loved working with Miss O to assemble this beautiful flower and I know Pink Grandma (as she is affectionately called) will adore it. This is a great dollar store craft using items I know you already have around your home.
What You’ll Need
- Construction paper
- One or two colours for the petals
- Photo of child’s face
First up, you’ll need six handprints from your child. If you are using two different colours, be sure to get three handprints in each colour. From here, you will need to sweet little footprints from the green construction paper. Simply trace their hands & feet on the paper and cut out the shapes.
Cut the child’s face in a circle from the photo. Glue the circle to the yellow paper and cut a slightly larger circle around the photo. Cut a rectangular stem from the green paper.
The first piece to assembling the flower is the stem. Lay that down then organize your handprints into a flower shape. Glue them down one by one. Once that is complete you will glue on your yellow/photo centre. From here, glue on the sweet little footprints to the stem as leaves, crossing over the heels.
On one of the footprints, handwrite this little note:
“A garden of love grows in a grandmother’s heart.”
On the other footprint you can add any note you like. I opted for Happy Mother’s Day and the year. At the centre, I wrote Miss O’s name.
These construction paper flowers couldn’t be any easier to make and are the perfect gift for your little one to give this Mother’s Day.
