Printable Mothers Day poems; Hand and footprint gifts

I can’t believe that Mother’s Day is almost with us. Personally. I can’t wait to see what wonderful ideas everyone comes up with. In case you are stuck, we have some printable Mothers Day poems for you, that can be the centrepiece of a hand or footprint craft, which you can then turn into some amazing posters to frame and give to that special lady on the big day.

We have some amazing Mothers day poems for you to print today, and give as gifts. Just add handprints or footprints!

I love hand and footprint craft, and it makes for a wonderful Mothers Day gift; something to really cherish. The poems that we have used for these printables are suitable for each, with one Mothers Day poem working well for handprints and the other footprints.

Footprint poem

The pitter patter of little feet,
leave behind something dear and sweet.
A precious gift for me to treasure,
tiny prints to keep forever

Both of these are anonymous poems, and I can’t find the credit for them anyway – so thanks so much to whomever wrote them. For the footprint Mothers Day poem, why not place the feet in a heart shape within our design to make it all the more gorgeous?

A lovely free printable poem for using alongside your child's footprints in a perfect Mothers Day gift.
This time the Mothers Day poem is in Black and White, so your child can add their own bit of colour to it!

As you can see, we do have a black and white revision, so you can colour in as you choose. You might also want to mount the printable within a frame, perhaps decorating it with heart stickers, or any other Mothers Day designs that take your fancy.

Handprint poem

My sticky litter fingerprints,
I’ve left on every wall.
And on the drawers and table tops,
I’ve really marked them all.
But there is one that I have done,
the best I’ve ever made.
The handprint this is a gift for you,
One that will never fade.

If you are after a lovely Mothers Day Poem, then this handprint one is perfect. Print it out, get your child to pop their handprints on it and there you go - the perfect gift at a really reasonable price!
We have a black and white version of the Mothers Day poem for you as well, just in case you would like to get your child to decorate it, rather than print it out with our colour scheme. A lovely Mothers Day gift idea.

Again, there is a black and white version for this for you too. To download all of these, just click on the image below, and it will take you to the free printable containing all the designs:

We have some lovely ideas for you - free Mothers Day poems for you to print out, add your child's footprint and handprints too. All to make a really simple Mothers Day gift. So easy, and such great value.
