Happy Mother’s Day 2015


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.


My two Love Bugs

For this project we used old baby formula tins, wooden frame from  Michaels, felt alphabet, stickers, and a trip to Home Depot.


Formula Tin & Art Frame

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.


How Lovely!!!

Oh, I pierced holes in the tins and covered with the top of the formula can for easy watering. DSC00944

The kids had a final touch on their frames because they just love to glue things:)
