Sunny Potted Flowers for Small Hands Creating Hope

Jun 11, 2012


Welcome to the Small Hands Creating Hope project! I am so excited to be a part of this exciting fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, together with an incredibly talented group of bloggers who focus on fun, creative, and education activities for kids!

There is not a single person that I know who's life has not been touched in some way by the effects of cancer, our own family included. It is for this reason that I felt it important to be a part of this project. The goal is to raise money which is always needed in the HOPE of finding a cure and also to share wonderful projects that you could use to help brighten someone's day who is dealing with the effects of cancer themselves.

Small Hands Creating Hope

Each of us has worked with our children or students to create a craft that could be made by or for someone facing cancer.

Here is our contribution. Sunny Potted Flowers!
A great home-made gift that your child can make for someone facing cancer to help brighten their day.
The full, simple picture tutorial is available for you in the book. Keep reading for details


The projects in this book are stunning, and several include tutorials so that you can recreate the crafts at home with your own children or students!

Here is a peek of some of the fabulous projects included in the book that you can make with your kids


Our projects have been compiled into an ebook, which we are sending out to anyone who donates at least $15 to the American Cancer society. An email with the download link, as well as a second link that allows you to purchase a hard copy of the book at production cost will be sent once we receive your donation. (Let me tell you that the hard copy of the book is just stunning!)

This button will take you directly to the American Cancer Society’s donation page:

If you donate at least $15 but do not receive this email for any reason, or if you have trouble with the download, email smallhandsproject at gmail dot com.


MaryAnne at Mama Smiles compiled this book as a way of celebrating thirty years of cancer survivorship! (Yay MaryAnne!)
We are hoping to raise $3000 by July 4th, and we are running a blog hop from May 14th until July 4th to celebrate and raise funds so that, in the future, thirty years of cancer survivorship will be the norm, not the exception! Learn about each of the bloggers who participated in the book by visiting each blog on their assigned dates – a few bloggers will be running celebratory giveaways, too!
