Mother's Day Crafts
thick craft sticks
beads or any small type of items to put on picture frame
(such as something that sparkles or shines that can be glued
strips that can be cut to 1 inch for each frame to be made
4 craft sticks and pick 1 or 2 colors of glitter paint to
paint the craft sticks with. Let dry. Try to make the frame
just a little but bigger than your picture. Be sure to check
the picture to make sure is it going to fit right in the
frame. If the frame is a little too big tape the picture
onto construction paper and then put into the frame and
tape the entire thing onto the back of the frame.
the four craft sticks are dry, glue them together to make
a square or a rectangle to fit your picture. Glue the corners
on the craft sticks to form the shape you want.
the craft sticks are together and dry start to glue on your
decorations to your frame. Write something with a permanent
marker onto the frame. One thing to definitely write on
is is the year it was made, and Happy Mothers Day.
the decorations are put on, turn the frame over and glue
your picture onto all the sides of the frame. Then at the
top of your frame after the picture is completely dry glue
on the back of the picture in the middle the 1 inch magnetic
strip. This way it will stick on the refrigerator all the
time as a decoration.
can also be done as a decoration for an ornament for the
Christmas Tree. The only difference is to attach a string
to the picture frame so it can be hung from a tree.
Butterfly Handprint and Poem
You will need at least 3 colors of tempera paint and black.
construction paper - brushes
Have the child open his hand and spread his fingers.
The body of the butterfly is painted in black. Start with the
tip of the child's middle finger and paint all the way to the
bottom of the palm.
Next color the palm on both sides of the black line the first
color - I talk about symmetry as I paint.
Then paint the thumb and pinky finger with the second color.
Lastly paint the last two remaining fingers with the third color.
I like to have at least 6 colors available so that all of the
butterflies are different.
Next press the hand onto a piece of white construction paper.
Make sure to keep the middle finger still and move the other
fingers to expand the "wings" of the butterfly. ( I make sure
my paper is big enough for two prints - I just print the first
one and then move the hand to another area and print again -
I use the second handprint as a bulletin board butterfly or
sometimes hang from the ceiling).
When the paint dries you can add antennae with a marker.
Cut out butterfly and mount on a contrasting piece of construction
paper with the following poem:
This isn't just a Butterfly
As you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand
Which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of Love
Especially to say
I hope you have a very
Happy Mother's Day
