Simple and Quick Mother’s Day craft to give!

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.
