If you are looking for an easy, personalized, inexpensive, and cute craft to create with your toddler this is it! Finger Flowers can be as colorful and detailed as you would like. You can also make them any size and embellish them as you wish. They are not only adorable but can serve as a keepsake to remember the tiny hands that inspire them.
We recently used this specific project for the delivery of a teacher appreciation note, but these cute creations could be used in scrapbooks, on Father’s Day, as a fun craft, or in any other way you can imagine. We didn’t make any additional or special purchases for this craft because we already had these items in our home. We just spent some time with our toddler and allowed him to put the final decorating touches on his Finger Flower for his teacher.

We kept this Finger Flower simple and let our son do the decorating. While working on this project with him, I noticed places we could have added differing embellishments. This craft didn’t take us very long and it was easy to keep him engaged and involved. There are million variations to this one so please share yours!
