Let's make handprint flowers to thank everyone working to provide essential services during COVID-19! Let’s put smiles on their faces!
Some of these essential employees during shutdown include doctors, nurses, paramedics, police officers, firefighters, truckers, grocers and delivery people. They have gone above and beyond to care for us!
In this arts and crafts for kids video, Moose Mischief author and illustrator Danielle Gillespie-Hallinan and her friend the Moose will teach kids how to make adorable handprint flowers (or hoof print flowers if you’re a MOOSE)!
This easy paper craft is ideal for kids 5 years and older with adult supervision. It will take about 25 minutes to complete.
For this craft, you will need paper plates, paint, glitter (optional), craft sticks (optional), glue, green construction paper, watercolor paper, scissors, colored pencils, crayons or markers. You will also want to print off the vase coloring page. This PDF has images of two vases. One says thank you and the other is blank, so people in non-English speaking countries can write thank you in their language.
When you're finished with your flowers, please display them in your window at home and post photos of them to Instagram with the hashtag #thankworkers. That way, workers all over the world can see your heartfelt artwork!
Also, please share this video with your friends and family, so they can make handprint flowers and show their gratitude too!
