Gift for Grandparents: Handprint Flower and Poem

Flower Handprint Poem

Handprint poems for parents and grandparents are so nice to receive for any holiday, birthday, or just because….  Our Emily, who just finished pre-school, presented this poem to her mother for Mother’s Day. As you can see from the photo, the handprint poem was placed in the middle of a yellow and pink handprint flower made with Emily’s own handprints:


 I miss you when we’re not together
I’m growing up so fast
See how big I’ve gotten
Since you saw me last!
As I grow, I’ll change a lot,
The years will fly right by
When and where and why?
Look upon this handprint flower
That’s hanging on your wall
And memories will come back of
When I was very small.

Needless to say, this brought tears to her Mommy’s eyes…mine, too… is a One Stop Birthday Party Shop[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

    I have always liked the little handprint ideas. I remember when our kids were in preschool and came home with a mold of their little hands and a different poem. Then the grandkids did the same.

    Handprint crafts are the best! And combined with a poem–there’s nothing better.
