I wanted to create a craft that could bring tears to any mothers eyes in a happy sentimental way. Our moms loved getting our tiny hand prints as children, but to see them as adults holding our own children’s hands has to be one of the most beautiful moments that I can not wait to experience for myself. Your never guaranteed anything in life, just because I have children that does not mean I’ll have grand children, just because I want a daughter doesn’t mean I’ll have one. If either of those dreams happen I will be unbelievably grateful for them. If I ever have a daughter that makes this for me it will be the greatest gift she could ever give me!
My dear son, when your older reading this feel free to make this craft for me. I have thought of how to change it properly…..Busy being the best parent ever…….Because you showed me how! (ok, now I’m getting emotional)
This wonderful gift started out as a card which you can also do instead. Simply put your handprints on the front and write, Busy Being The Best Mom(Parent) Ever… and on the inside write, Because You Showed Me How! Love, your daughter/son
I used white construction paper and paint for the hand prints. For the black background I bought thick craft paper from Hobby Lobby because it had a true black color and was more sturdy. Using double sided tape to assemble together and using a white crayon to write the sentimental quote. You can Find a white frame at Target to complete this look and the finishing results are beautiful. I couldn’t be happier and I’m hoping when my mom see’s this she knows how much I love her and how grateful I am for all the things she has taught me!
