Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day   M🖐M 

Mother’s Day  The teacher used masking tape to spell Mom. She had the child paint over the tape and when it was dry she removed the tape. 

Handprints For Mom

   This simple heart planted in a pot is so cute for a first Mother’s Day.

Handprints and Hearts for Mom  This flower pot took a bit more work! Four handprints and the cute little poem in the middle make this flower great for babies to give to their mom on their first Mother’s Day

Handprints and Hearts  Tiny little bugs on the finger tips. Very cute.

Mother’s Day  Bejeweled poem for mom.

Old School Ideas

These ideas are tried and true old school Mothers Day cards and gifts.

Tea and flowers for MomOriginally the poem was mimeographed and glued inside the tea pot with a tea bag stapled inside. My little tea pot is very fragile some 30 years later! Cut these out so the handle is the fold.”

Flower Basket

Tea and Flowers for Mom  These flowers baskets are perfect for young toddlers to put together. Cut out enough for each in your care.

You’ll need Have lots of flowers cut from magazines, seed packets, or seed catalogs. You’ll also need a plastic strawberry quart container. The one we used has a grid almost. Like this… Quart basket .

You’ll also need brown paint and a paper plate or small tray used for the paint. Glue sticks or glue bottles will also be needed.

Begin by having the child dip the strawberry basket into the brown paint and the print it onto the basket cut out. Have the children do this several times to give the effect of a woven basket.

Next have the kids glue on flowers of their choice, keeping the handle free of any flowers.

Finish with a little bow on the handle. (Not shown)

Now let it dry and sign the back with a Mother’s Day message.

Spring Flowers

Spring Flowers

Ask your preschoolers to take a close look at the flowers that bloomed from the bulbs they planted back in October.

Daffodil Colors                                                                                                                                                  Prompt preschoolers with only the colors you want them to use. We painted on paper cut the long way, 11.5 by 6 inches offers the artists just the right space for their rendering.

Painting Daffodils                                                                                                                                                Preschoolers are very literal. If you simply say “Paint a daffodil” some will put their brush to the flower! Instead say “Paint a daffodil on the paper.”

Spring flowers                                                                                                                                                    As the children paint describe to them the parts of the flowers. You might bring to their attention the long green stems and yellow petals.
