Mother’s Day Flower Bouquet Craft
Children will love crafting this cute and colorful flower bouquet from lakeshorelearning.com and then gifting it to you for Mother’s Day (May 10). This activity suits kids 5 years and up.
What You’ll Need:
• Fabric flowers
• Pipe stems
• Colorful crinkle strips
• Tissue paper
• Adhesive glitter shapes, gemstones, feathers, buttons and macaroni
1. Ask your child to choose how many flowers she wants for her bouquet. Attach a pipe stem to the back of each fabric flower with glue, then let the glue dry.
2. Attach a pom-pom to the center of each flower with glue. Let the pom-pom set as the glue dries.
3. Decorate a sheet of felt with miscellaneous materials including rhinestones, feathers, stickers, buttons and glitter shapes. Glue decorations on, then let fully dry.
4. Roll the decorated sheet of felt into a cone shape to make the bouquet holder. Glue it together securely either with a glue gun or glue, then let dry. You may want to clip the end together to prevent it from opening..
5. Place the flowers into the bouquet holder and voilà – instant Mother’s Day gift.
While you’re waiting for your craft to dry, read holiday-appropriate books with your littles like The Night Before Mother’s Day (Grosset & Dunlap, 2010) by Natasha Wing or Mommy Hugs (Chronicle Books, 2003) by Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben.
