As a mother of 6 children, I happen to LOVE homemade Mother’s Day crafts. I also love anything that has a child’s fingerprints, hand prints or a drawing on it. I created the Wishing You a Happy Mother’s Day Fingerprint Craft template so the children can simply press their finger prints on to the paper to give Mom an adorable keepsake (see below for the download). Not to mention, children will get some nice practice in for fine motor skills, visual motor skills and tactile input.
All you have to do is print the Mother’s Day Fingerprint Craft template and start adding fingerprints. If the child doesn’t want to use his/her fingerprints, sponge painting works well too.
If you want to add in some oral motor skills, you could drop some paint on the paper and blow it across the page using a straw (see here for an example of this).

Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day!
