Mother's Day Flowers

If you didn’t see my post yesterday- be sure to check out the Mother’s Day Vase we made.  Today I’m showing you the flowers we made to go inside the vase.  (And remember- no peaking Gramma or Nana!)

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: 3 pieces of construction paper in various colors, photo paper, pipe cleaner, clay or playdough, something to decorate the paper with.

Hailey used the paint dobbers to decorate the paper.

Cut three strips from each color of paper.

Make those strips of paper into loops- I taped them to make them stay in the loop shape.

Then staple the three same colored loops together to create the flower.

    Those are adorable! My daughter loves using her “dot dot’s”. I’ve got two weeks until we see my mom for Mother’s Day. I know what I’m making for her now.

    Thank you SO MUCH for posting this idea! I spent forever scouring the internet to find a craft that my 2.5 yr old could do for mother’s day and this is perfect! All the other ideas were handprints or so complicated it was a craft made by me, not him. As we have to mail ours, I adapted it a bit (no vase and stapled flower to a card). Thanks again!
