Simple Mother’s Day Craft for Preschoolers

2014-05-05 16.50.47

For Mother’s Day, my kids created this simple flower pot craft made out of construction paper and paint. We will give one to each of their grandmothers for Mother’s Day.

First, I traced the pots and stem on construction paper. Then, I cut them out and let my preschooler glue them to the paper.

Next, I let WJ decide what color of paint to use and then I spread it on a paper plate. I had intended on having WJ use painted hand prints as flowers but my plan was foiled when he refused to put paint on his hands!

So instead I gave him a paintbrush and let him paint on the flowers. He was much happier with the paintbrush. I was, however, successful in getting my toddler to put paint on his hands so one of the crafts does have hand prints as flowers.

I then used glitter glue to write “Happy Mother’s Day” on the pots and my son used a sharpie to write his and his brother’s name on the construction paper (not shown above).

All you need for this simple Mother’s Day craft is the following:

  • Three pieces of construction paper (brown for the pots, green for the stems and a background color, we chose light blue)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Paint
  • Paint brush (if your preschooler doesn’t like getting paint on his hands, like mine!)

Have fun crafting for Mother’s Day!
