Have child dip fingertips into puddles to decorate the heart and write MOM. Do the M's in purple and the O in light blue. Use red, pink and light pink to decorate the heart. Let the paint dry completely. Place in frame.
My dirty little fingerprints I’ve left on every wall
And on the drawers and tabletops, I’ve really marked them all
But here are some that won’t rub off, I’m giving them to you
Because I’m thankful to have a mom that’s just like you!
