Mothers Day Projects for Preschoolers

These Mothers Day Projects for Preschoolers and Toddlers have been hand-picked as projects even the littlest hands can work on.

Handprint Wall Hanging

Each of my kids made this project when they were in kindergarten.  They are now grown adults and this project still hangs in our dining room.  It's very special memories!

Supplies Needed:

Print the Handprint Poem and cut out with edging scissors. Also cut the child's photo with the edging scissors.

Paint the child's hand with tempera paint and place the print on the felt. Let dry. Glue on the poem and the photo.

Use the small nail to poke holes along the top of the wallhanging. One row should be 1/2" down and one row at 1-1/2" down. Make the holes approximately 1" apart, but be sure the two rows line up to each other.

Use the small paperclip to make a tool that will allow you to lace the felt over the dowel and make the hanger for your wallhanging. Click here for more detail.

Your wall hanging is ready to go!
