Simple Hand Print Poem To Make for Mom for Mother's Day

My daughter went to a Montessori preschool. This is the Mother's Day gift they had the kids make one year. To this day it's still my favorite Mother's Day gift, and I have a feeling it will always be my favorite because of the little hand print.

Any mother will LOVE to get one of these cards for Mother's Day. Have the child pick a colored piece of construction paper. Fold it in half. Have the child decorate the front. You may need to help them write Happy Mother's Day on the front.

On one side of the inside have the child put their hand print. You do this by painting their hand and then having them place it on the paper. On the other side write one of the following poems. If you are doing this with a group of kids, you may want to type out the poem, print it out, and paste it on the card. Make sure you have the child sign it.

Here are the words to the short poem on my card:

I Give My Hand To You
This Day
Remember Me Now
As I Grow And Play

Here are words to a longer version:

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.

But every day I'm growing -
I'll be grown some day
And all those tiny hand prints
Will surely fade away.

So here's a little hand print
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.

Happy Card Making!

I made that same card for my mom in 1983 :).
