Tulips for Mom!

It all started with these little rascals.

I've shown you these kids before. They are the children of a custom home builder, that I do accounts receivable for and am good friends with their Mom. I love these kids and have been around since before each were born. My heart is attached to them.

I spent the summer (after the bookkeeping) doing craft and science experiments with the two oldest. They are accustomed to me bringing a new 'project' to work on.
This one was to be 'Tulip Handprints' of each child. I have done this before with my own daughter who is now 24. What I noticed on Pinterest is the leaves are wrong in my eyes if this it truly representing a tulip. Tulip leaves are long and not round as shown on Pinterest handprint art.

 So by painting the pinky finger side of the hand, it makes for perfect leaves and stem.
I added Love Grows Here with colored pencils and framed it to present to Mom! She loved it and I know as the years pass and the kids grow, she will continue to cherish even more as I do the one of my daughters handprints.

  1. Super cute and clever idea! I love it! Thank you for sharing! PINNED!

  2. These are the most adorable little rascals I have ever seen. Love the project too. It is nice that you can still do these projects with borrowed "rascals". You will have fun being a Grandma some day.

  3. What a cute idea! My girls are grown but I'll have to show this to them, for my grand kids and grand baby on the way. That's for sharing!

  4. What a great and neat idea to hold on the memories of our little ones. Perfect with spring hopefully coming soon so we can see some real tulips popping up too!

  5. Lovely family and an adorable craft idea. Certain to be a lifelong memento.


  6. Beautiful kids! That artwork will be treasured forever!

  7. Super project!! Thank you for linking with Home Sweet Home!


It makes me smile to hear from you!
