Mothers Day Poems for Kids and Gift Ideas
It’s time to help the kids celebrate their moms with these cute Mothers Day poems for kids. Now, more than ever, because we’re all forced to stay at home, we need to get creative with gift ideas for moms. Along with poems and songs, I’ve also included Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Mothers Day Handprint Poem
Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be elaborate and fancy to express appreciation and love. Instead, try this adorable printable handprint poem for mom from the kids.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
“I know you wipe some away,
But these prints are here to stay.
So, keep them forever,
A treasure they will be.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
This easy Mother’s Day craft will be cherished for years to come, and it costs next to nothing to make.
If you are doing remote learning, you can share the printable poem file with the families as a gift, and let them trace the kids’ hands, or paint and make a hand print.
You will need the printable Mother’s Day poem for kids, 1-2 paint colors, paintbrushes, a paper plate, wet paper towels, and a pair of adorable little hands.
To get started, I let my daughter pick out the paint colors. She had the option of choosing one or two. Of course, she choose 2 – pink and purple.
Next, we prepped our area to avoid getting paint everywhere. If you are tracing the kids hands, and letting them color them in with markers, it won’t be messy at all. We simply put a small amount of paint onto a paper plate, and got two paint brushes.
After reading the Mother’s Day poem for kids, it was time to start painting. I simply used the brushed one of the colors onto the palm of her hand using the paint brush. Then, carefully put her hand into the open space to leave a hand print.
To finish this easy Mothers Day craft, I repeated the process on her other hand using the other color she had selected. That’s it…easy peasy – lemon squeezy!
