HOMESCHOOL - Growing Handprints!

Ah the signs of Spring - flowers, ladybugs, handprints.... Yes - you read that correctly - handprints! :) Surf homeschooling blogs long enough and you will find all sorts of fingers and palms in pictures and designs popping up throughout the year. Of course, we had to make at least one ourselves. So here's the scoop on ours in case you want to copy it (if you do, please share the blog love and link back to me)!

The flower is made of coffee filters my daughter painted with watercolors. Very pretty...buuuuuuut it seemed to be missing something. Wanting to add a pop of color and dimension, I dug through my things until I came across a bag of buttons. I think when we added a few to the center of the flower and made a border of them as well, it really gave it a fun twist! And the highlight? The handprints (grass) of course and a little thumbprint ladybug! :)
