Bambino Academy - Handprint Flowers

: : : Simple Ideas For Your Bambino : : :

~ C is 33 Months ~
We made these adorable Handprint Sunflowers, well technically they are just flowers due to the colours C chose, but they certainly resemble sunflowers don't you think, for Mother's Day. They are so cheerful and pretty though that I'd love to fill a large vase with a couple.

So simple too, steps we followed are:
Choose large sheet cardboard
Paint hands 
Stamp handprints, should get at least 2 stamps before you need to reapply or change colours
Allow to dry
Whilst drying paint paper plates for flower centres
Allow to dry
Cut around hand prints and inside circle of paper plates
Glue handprints to the paper plates
We chose to attach sticks to ours. This really makes these a fabulous gift that is so easily transported to the particular loved one. 
Ever have those times where you have made something only for it to be crumpled and squashed by over loving little fingers whilst on the way to give the gift?  With a stick to carry there's no need to worry about that.
