As Mother’s Day approaches, it’s a time to reflect on the love, strength, and resilience that defines the bond between a mother and child. For parents navigating the challenging journey of supporting a child diagnosed with DIPG, every moment becomes precious, and every celebration holds profound meaning.

In honor of Mother’s Day, we invite you to embark on a heartfelt crafting project that not only celebrates the beauty of the maternal bond but also creates cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Today, we’ll guide you through the creation of a fingerprinted flower pot, a simple yet meaningful gift that embodies the unique connection between parent and child.


Materials Needed:

Terra Cotta Flower Pots

Acrylic Paint In Various Colors


Acrylic Paint Markers

Mod Podge Sealer  (optional)

Your child’s willingness and creativity!


Steps to Create Your Fingerprinted Flower Pot:

Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace

Gather all your materials and lay them out on a clean, flat surface. Place some paper towels nearby for easy cleanup.

Step 2: Start Painting

Select a few vibrant colors of acrylic paint, using a paintbrush, and apply a layer of paint. Let dry completely. 

Step 3: Fingerprints

Apply a thin layer of paint to your child’s fingertip. Then, gently press their finger onto the surface of the flower pot to create a fingerprint. Repeat this step using different finger placements to create a pattern such as strawberries, flowers, or bees. Let their imagination soar!

Step 4: Add Personal Touches

Using the acrylic paint markers add details to the fingerprints. Encourage your child to get creative! They can add extra embellishments like wings on the bees, or a vine on top of the strawberries. Let them decorate the flower pot with their unique touch.

Step 5: Let It Dry

Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 6: Seal the Pot (Optional)

For added durability, consider applying a clear waterproof sealant to the surface of the flower pot. This will help protect the fingerprints and preserve the beauty of your creation for years to come.

Step 7: Plant Your Favorite Flowers

Once the sealant has dried (if applied), fill your fingerprinted flower pot with soil and plant your favorite flowers or herbs. As they bloom and flourish, they will serve as a living reminder of the love and strength that fills your family’s heart.

This Mother’s Day, take a moment to celebrate the extraordinary journey of parenthood and the unwavering love that transcends all challenges. Through simple yet meaningful gestures like crafting a fingerprinted flower pot, we can create lasting memories that honor the beauty of family and the power of togetherness.

Wishing you a Mother’s Day filled with love, joy, and heartfelt connections.
