Presenting a special bouquet of flowers:
My Mother’s day bouquet
These are really easy to make:
- Squirt out your paint – we used Michael’s Crayola washable tempera paints
- Take subject’s hand
- Paint subject’s hand. Work quickly depending on age and patience level of subject.
- Press subject’s hand onto paper.
- Let dry.
- Add some foliage (stems and leaves) and cut out or back with additional paper.
And if you’re a visual learner:
Prep your materials.
Painting your subject.
Stamp, stamp, stamp.
Hand prints: complete!
And then when the hand prints turn into painting…
Happy Mother’s day!
I had the pleasure of turning my Pinterest board into reality last week to make Michael’s preschool valentines. I know I’m biased, but I’m pretty impressed with the final product. (I really liked last year’s valentines too!)
You’re out of this world, Valentine!
Space ducks: unite!
These valentines are super easy to make, relatively inexpensive, and don’t include sugar, so they’re good for kids of all ages:
- Buy these astronaut and space alien rubber ducks from Amazon
- Print out this sheet of valentines on cardstock.
- Add your name on the bottom and cut them out.
- Poke a hole.
- Attach the tag to the duck.
- Tie a bow, trim the edges. Voila!
Here is Micheal working on his valentine “mailbox” at school. He’s a crafter in the making! (And, yes, they call him “Big Mike”!)
