We love our moms. They clean up our dirty bottoms, clean our cuts, kiss away booboos, and tuck us in at night. The role of mom is a busy one, can be long and tiring, but it is also very rewarding. That’s why we love Mother’s Day. It is one of the days when our kids and spouses come out and show us what we mean to them, and that is important. So why not show mom how much we love her this Mother’s Day with some fabulous flower crafts.
Paper Flower pot: this is an excellent craft for younger children. All you need is some glue, some construction paper, scissors, a marker, and an adult!
Trace your hand on a sheet of green construction paper. Then cut out your handprint.
Now draw a flowerpot on a piece of construction paper (your color choice). Then cut it out.
Now draw 5 little flowers on your construction paper (your color choice, what is moms favorite color?) then cut them out.
Glue the handprint fingers up onto the back of the pot, so it looks like it is growing out of the pot. Next glue your flowers onto the top of the five fingers.
Use your marker to write a special Mother’s Day note to your mom on the front of the pot. Now you have a very special flower pot bouquet for mom!
Clothespin Planter: this is perfect for older kids to do for mom. You need an old tuna can (washed out with no lid), some clothes pins, some soil, and a plant.
Start with your washed out tuna can. Choose a small plant or flower to put in it. Fill the bottom of the can in soil, then carefully place your plant on top. Fill the plant in with more soil, then pat down. Leave a half inch of space between the soil and the top of the tuna can.
Now take your clothes pins and clip them around the edge of the tuna can. Do this all the way around.
Now you have a fancy little plant for mom. Water it and bring it to your mom for a spectacular gift!
