Mother’s Day Fingerprint Flower Pot

Are you in search of a homemade, heartfelt, and cost-effective Mother’s Day craft? I enjoy activities that encourage children to showcase their creativity and affection. This Fingerprint Flower Pot project for Mother’s Day is delightful, as kids can choose which fingerprint animals they would like to make.

How to create this Mother’s Day Fingerprint Flower Pot

First, gather all of your supplies for the flower pot craft. Below is a list of all the supplies you may need.

Determine what you’d like to transform your child’s fingerprints into. There is a wide array of animals and shapes you can create. While my children prefer making bees and ladybugs, you can make butterflies, flowers, hearts, or even tiny birds. Let your creativity run wild!

Afterward, paint your pot with your preferred base color. We opted for white to make the bees and ladybugs pop, but any light color will work just fine. Make sure to allow ample time for the paint to dry before adding the fingerprints to the pot.

Feel free to proceed with the following steps in your own way depending on the ages of your child(ren).

  • Dip the pointer finger in paint and guide the little ones on where to place it on the pot.
  • Cover the pot with as many prints as desired for various animals or shapes.
  • Let the prints dry before turning them into animals or shapes.
  • Use the paint pens to outline the features of your animals on top of the fingerprints.
  • After adding your details to the fingerprints, add soil and plant the flower.
  • Enhance the pot with a Mother’s Day banner, such as this one by @bycamimonet.
