Last week we shared our Hand Print Flower Bouquet over at Mess for Less. In case you missed it, we wanted to share it with you before Easter!!
Here is what we did.
Green Pipe Cleaners
A favorite little pair of hands:)
When we use paint, I usually set it up like this.
I started out by painting my little ones hands with one color at a time.
I helped her to press them down on the paper.
We did this a few times (one for each "flower") and once the paint was dry, I cut out all of the hand prints.
Since each hand print need an exact match for the back of the flower, I traced each one on matching construction paper.
I put glue on the back of the plain print and then the green pipe cleaner on top.
Then second hand print went on the top. This is how it looked in the end.
Next I filled the vase with green grass and some Easter candy - Hershey Kisses:)
Lastly, I placed each of the hand print "flowers" in the vase and topped it off with some more candy.
