Mothers Day Crafts: Handpainted Flower Pots for Mother’s Day

Sharing is caring!

Mother’s day is the perfect time to let your little ones artistic side come out.  I love making homemade presents for my mother and mother in law, they are always so much more fun to give and receive.  This year I got both of the kids involved in the fit making process. (Make sure you check out all of our Mothers Day Crafts for more ideas.)

My mother in law is a big fan of gardening so we made some hand painted flower pots for her.  This was such a fun activity for kids that I’m sure my mother in law will love always.

How to Make a Handpainted Flower Pot for Mothers Day:

We laid down a piece of paper and put our paint on some paper plates.  We had originally wanted to put hand prints all over the clay pot but the kids had a different idea.

They had so much fun just making swirls with the paint and the brushes that we got very few hand prints on our pots.  We didn’t mind and I’m sure my mother in law will love them as well.

After the paint was dry I used my paint marker to write a simple to and from on the top of the flower pot.  We did manage to get some hand prints on the pots!  If your flower pot is going to be used outside I would spray it with a sealant to keep the paint from running.  Our pots are going to be inside so I added a bunch of fake flowers to them.
