Oh mother you have given me a gift of a ‘lifetime.’ You were the first person to love me, care for me and cherish me. There is no other love like a mothers love. I have been given that gift too and I am blessed to have my own two children and others.
Thanks to my daycare I have been mother to many. I get to be called mommy, mamma, mamma Sue until these little ones develop enough vocabularies to say Miss Sue. I am happy to share our Mother’s Day project with you.
For this project we used old baby formula tins, wooden frame from Michaels, felt alphabet, stickers, and a trip to Home Depot.
The children then painted the tins and the frames. They chose their colors.
We then taped some dollies on the tin and painted on it. This formed a pretty pattern that moms will love. Each child did their own tin.
They took turns gluing on the felt M. I gave them some tacky glue to add on each piece because the adhesive on the decorative pieces usually don’t last long..so some other glue helps to secure it. I like tacky glue/ clear glue because it works on almost everything. This you can get at any craft store. I got mine from Walmart.
We then made a trip to Home Depot – what’s Mothers Day without some real flowers. The kids chose their flowers…except the baby:)
I then transplanted them to the tins they decorated.
The kids had a final touch on their frames because they just love to glue things:)
They had a blast doing this project and the moms loved it too.
