For this handprint project, you will need a bigger piece of paper- I used 12 x 12 card stock (the one I made when my son was a year old, I was able to fit on construction paper). Place 2 green handprints in the center of the page.
Next, cut a flowerpot shape to place underneath the green handprints.
Add some wavy, green stems.......
.... and then paint in leaves ( it might also be cute to use fake leaves from the craft store).
After the green paint has finished drying, add in the centers of the flowers. I made these using my son's thumbprints (or fingerprints) dipped in blue, orange, & purple.
For this next step, keep in mind that gentle presses make more of a circular shape and harder presses will form more of an oval shape. I dipped my son's thumb (or you could use a finger) in yellow paint and pressed it firmly down in 4 spots around each of the thumbprint flower centers so that it resembled a flower. Repeat with the rest of the flowers.
