Looking for a gift to make with kids that will actually be used? This finger painted bookmark tutorial is a simple sewing project for beginners, but is fun to paint, too!

My Mom was always tinkering, crafting, and making something by hand when I was growing up. I love honoring that memory by making her handmade gifts, and it is even more fun when I can involve my kids! It can be a challenge to come up with gift ideas kids can help with that will actually be used and enjoyed (macaroni noodle photo frame, anyone?) but I love the resist painting method. We made DIY finger painted bookmarks together, washing our hands in between colors with SoftSoap® Hand Wash Plus Lotion™, and they turned out great!

Picking out cards is such a fun activity and we had a great time choosing Mother’s Day cards from the selection of Hallmark Signature cards at Walmart! I came up with a simple sewing project that they could also help with so I can pair the hand-painted fabric tray with the beautiful cards they chose. There are lots of ideas for what to sew for Mother’s Day but this is an easy one to get the kids involved.
