Today was all about Mother’s Day for my littles. We completed three different crafts from my newest packet, and we’ll finish up with a letter to Mom and a silly fill-in-the-blank questionnaire about Mom tomorrow. (I’ve also included versions for Grandmom and Aunt for those kids who don’t live with their Mom!). Here’s a peek at what the kids did today:
First, we created portraits of our Moms and made free-form scrappy flowers. Then we modpodged these onto a canvas that we’d painted green. Tomorrow, the kids will fill out a form about their moms and we’ll attach it to the back of the portraits as a funny keepsake!
Then, we decorated these flower pots I picked up super cheap at Walmart last year. I wrote an original poem to include in the cups and I laminated the poem and attached them to a colored popsicle stick to put down in the dirt. I’m a little late planting, so I told the kids the flowers will not bloom til after Mother’s Day (hmmm….unless I sneak out there and replace the seeds with a Marigold!!)
Their favorite craft was a 3d heart flower we made. I’ve included the templates and picture instructions for this craft in my Mother’s Day packet.
I also wrote an original poem that goes with this craft about a “love seed” that your mom planted in your heart!
The kids made a Garden of Praise for their Moms
and tomorrow they’ll write a letter to their mom using the template included.
Everything you need to make this a fabulous floral Mother’s Day is included in my packet, which is on sale for the next few days. Go check it out!
