Well Hello! Yes, I’m still on vacation with the fam. We are having the best time and I can’t wait to share some of the fabulous adventures we’re having. Are you following along on Instagram? I’m sharing some fun pics. I’m so giddy about the announcement earlier this week. I’m getting emails and tweets from you all asking to spill the beans and I just can’t wait. I have a few more things to get in line before we tell you all and then it will just be a matter of changing it. All the background stuff which I’m not super excited about, but will be happy when its done.
Anywho…. I have this fun children’s craft for Mother’s Day I wanted to share with you all in the case you wanted to make it with them before the big day. Hey Mom’s, let’s not forget to remind our family that Mother’s Day is coming up on May 11th!
These are great for Mom, but in the case you feel weird having the kids make it for you, its always a hit for the Grandma’s!!!
We found most of the supplies at Walmart, but you can also find the foam at the Dollar Tree to save a little more.
- Elmer’s Dry Erase Board – I love the size for this project, but we love them just to have DNH Girl practicing her letters. Who doesn’t love that!
- Flower Cupcake Liners – Walmart
- Foam – I found the pack at the Dollar Tree, but they also have them at Michaels or Walmart
- Pictures of your babes. I printed them off my computer onto 4×6 paper and arranged for 2 on each page.
- Circle Cutter (optional)
- White Glue – Again, I used Elmers, but any white glue will work
We first worked on fitting the picture into the cupcake liner. Measure the bottom of the line to determine the size of the picture. Our liners are 2 inches.
Then using the circle cutter, we measure a 2 inch circle and cut out the picture. If you don’t have the circle cutter, using the scissors cut the picture into a circle approximately 2 inches.Once you have it cut out. Add some glue to the back and place it inside the cupcake liner.Now its time for the kids to get creative. Using the foam you or they can cut out stems and grass and leaves. DNH Girl was all about the foam flowers and asked if I would cut out the pedals in the reds and oranges and blues and of course PINK. She cut out the flower stems and then it was just about gluing it all down along with the pictured cupcake flowers. We used a few left over pieces to add some grass with slits all along the top to give it the flare. So fun and super easy. Be prepared to make a few because all the Grandmas are going to LOVE THEM!!! (P.S. The foam boards come in a three pack and the flower cupcake lines come in packs of 12. You should have no problem making more than one) 🙂
