Preview: A Mother’s Day Poem for mom when her life is currently covered in fingerprints.
If you are looking for a homemade Mother’s Day gift, this fingerprints poem for mom is sure to be her favorite gift ever! Mom deserves a Mother’s Day gift that comes from the heart… or the fingertips… of her children.
A poem for the busy Mom who is knee deep in fingerprints…
Do you feel like you clean in circles? Do you wonder how your house can get to be such a mess when you just finished cleaning? Can you only vaguely remember what your house looked like before you had children? Oh good, then it’s not just me!
One day I started to wonder if I should just leave the fingerprints. They reappear faster than I can clean them anyways. I’ll call it a “frosted mirror”.
But one day that mirror will stay clean for the worst reason. The kids won’t be putting them there anymore. They will be grown and out of the house and building their own lives- without Mom there every day to clean up after them.
Here is a little Mother’s Day treat to allow you to treasure those fingerprints. You don’t have to continuously wipe them off. You may not even want to…
Little fingerprints poem: a Mother’s Day poem from child
My daughters were making me handmade Mother’s Day bracelets last year, I realized something: Mom’s don’t want STUFF for Mother’s Day. Plants and coffee mugs are nice, but a gift from the heart that says “I love you, Mom” is what she really wants. Seeing those excited little faces light up as they hand you the gift they made all by themselves- well, that feeling is the best gift of Mothers Day.
Let’s grab those little fingers and use them to make mom feel special this year! Remembering those fingerprints she has to clean every. single. day. won’t seem so bad after she receives this fingerprints poem for Mother’s Day!
This printable Mother’s Day poem is a wonderful way for Mom to keep those little handprints small forever.

Tips for helping kids make their handprints on Mom’s Fingerprints poem:
- Use a paintbrush to apply paint on their hands. (We love this washable paint from Crayola!)
- Keep baby wipes or paper towels nearby!
- Print out several copies of the poem. It took us a couple tries to get a usable print with everyone’s fingers in the page. Try the “straight down, straight up” technique to avoid smudging.
