Matt pulled off a big surprise last year for Mother’s Day. He got me out of the house without the baby and made a present with the help of our infant son last year. He raced around to the craft store, dipped a wiggly baby in craft paint (he was careful to buy non-toxic paint for the baby he told me…which was adorable in itself that he was worried) and cleaned up the mess by the time I got home! It was really sweet and thoughtful. He created this Love piece of art that still hangs in our office. It’s amazing to see how much our son’s feet and hands have grown in a year!
It’s such a simple craft – you can print out our template here:
The child’s hand print becomes the “O” and their feet make the “V”. Let it dry and frame it. Voila! A quick and thoughtful Mother’s Day gift.
