Growing up, my sister and I had our moments, but overall we have always been close friends. Our bond only strengthened after we both became mothers and our relationship grows in our deep bond with one another’s children and mutual understanding for one another’s daily sacrifices, struggles, and triumphs as moms. My children adore their Aunt Cort and have a special love for her; so we always include her in our Mother’s Day by sending a gift or card that the kids participate in. This Mother’s Day, to show our mad love for Aunt Cort and the fun personality she is, we created an easy, but meaningful, love you handprint gift and included it in a care package filled with a pampering pedicure kit for an easy at-home pedicure she can sneak in during nap time.

To create your own version of this sentimental gift, you’ll need some paint, a paint brush, craft paper, a few letter stickers, and little hands.

First, you’ll pour some paint into a small plate and gently paint both of your child’s hands with a brush until they’re completely covered.

Next, you’ll carefully arrange your child’s hands on the paper in a darling little heart shape. Press down firmly to ensure a nice print. Let the paint dry and wash up those little hands!

Once the paint is completely dry, use some letter stickers to spell out your own Mother’s Day message. We stuck with a simple, “Love you!” message.

Something very special about Aunt Cort is that she is a military wife. Her husband, Uncle Keith, is a drill instructor in the Marine Corps, which leaves Aunt Cort with a lot on her plate, including two kids under three years old! She doesn’t have much time alone or away from the house, so we put together a perfect pedicure kit with everything she needs to create an at-home pedicure during nap time. I’m thoroughly obsessed with my own Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File, so we just had to include one for her. It’s the easiest way to slough off hard skin areas of your foot. It always leaves my feet feeling soft and smooth; so I knew Aunt Cort would appreciate one of her own. We also included the Amopé™ Foot Cream. Paired with the Pedi Perfect™, she’ll get soft beautiful feet effortlessly. Evelyn picked out a beautiful lilac polish because every busy mama needs a gorgeous coat of paint for her piggies. And we finished off her Mother’s Day care package with pedicure essentials like clippers, a file, and extra polish for when the mood strikes her.
