Then basically you put it together.....handprint at the top....tulip flower then feet become the leaves after the kids draw a stem. Two together looks great.
My parents love having a special reminder about how big their child's hands and feet were at a certain age. The kids love any craft that uses a tracing of their hands and feet. Always a hit for parents and kids alike.
Don't know if that helps or not??
Here are 2 poems you could use with this idea....
Nothing great...I just made them up to go with the inside of the card...
Tulips are popping up down the street,
These tulips were made with my hands and my feet.
I made these tulips just to say,
That I love you and
Happy Mother's Day.
here is another...
Tulips, tulips at my feet.
Tulips, tulips down the street.
I used my hands and used my feet,
I think my tulips are really neat!
Don't know if that helps at all??
