Mother’s Day Paper Flower Bouquet

When my oldest son was in elementary school he made me the most adorable bouquet of paper flowers for Mother’s Day. I still have those flowers over fifteen years later, and I love them just as much now as I did when he gave them to me. This bouquet is truly one of the most special bouquets I have ever had. My son’s hands were traced to make each flower. So, my niece and I made a similar version of that Mother’s Day Paper Flower Bouquet for my sister. Let’s get started!

Mother’s Day Paper Flower Bouquet


  • 4-5 pieces of construction paper.
  • Glue. 
  • Scissors.
  • Crayons.

Begin this sweet project by tracing your little one’s hand on to three sheets of construction paper. We traced my niece’s hand two times on each sheet of construction paper. To save time, you could trace their hand once, and fold the paper in half and cut once. My niece needs to practice her cutting, so we cut each one out individually.

Then, cut each hand print out.

Now, glue each hand print onto a sheet of construction paper. Arrange them to look like a flower bouquet.

Next, use your final sheet of paper to cut out a vase to glue under the flower bouquet.

Use a green crayon to draw flower stems from the vase to the handprint flowers.

Finally, use a darker colored crayon or marker to write Happy Mother’s Day on the vase.

This is a great project to make with toddlers and elementary school age children. And, I am sure it will be loved as much as my handprint bouquet is.

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed making this darling Mother’s Day Paper Flower Bouquet.
