KinderArt® Lesson/Activity

MOTHER'S DAY CRAFT

Grade K-2
Age: 4-6

Fun stuff from Therese Buckles of the City of Temecula.

Objectives

A nifty, thrifty idea for mom.

What You Need:

  • 8" terra cotta pot
  • magazines
  • decoupage or white craft glue
  • raffia

What You Do:

  1. Instruct children to choose several different pictures from magazines, cut out pictures and organize on pot, it takes some children some time to arrange the pictures as they would like.

  2. Paint small surface where picture is to be placed with decoupage and adhere picture; continue until all pictures are on the pot.

  3. Make sure to instruct the children to only pick a few pictures and make sure they are the appropriate size as if some are too large they will not lay flat.

  4. After all pictures are on paint entire pot with decoupage (use two coats).

  5. When dry tie raffia around rim. If desired plant a pretty flower in it for Mom.
