These are simple and fun crafts for even the youngest children to do as a decoration or a Mother's Day card. The center of the flower can be further decorated with sequins, small seeds or a photo.
a printer (or draw your own stem and leaves).
a piece of paper.
Two muffin cups (the paper cups you make muffins or cupcakes in) - we used one small and one large, but you could use two of the same size.
Something the color with (paint, crayons, markers, etc) -- pink, silver and purple are nice choices for mother's day.
Colour the two muffin cups mother's day colours (they will be the flower head).
This step should be first, especially if using paint, so it has a chance to dry while you're doing the other steps.
Set aside to dry.
Print out the craft template of choice.
Cut out the template pieces and colour if necessary.
Fold a piece of construction paper in half to make a card.
Glue the leaves and the stem onto the front of the card.
Glue the two muffin cups onto the top of the stem (one on top of the other) to form the flower.
Flatten out the bottom cup a bit more t
han the top cup so you can see the petals.
you can use more than two cups if you want... the more cups you use, the more petals your flower will have.
Print "Happy Mother's Day!" on the card.
You can decorate the card further by colouring in grass. Alternatively, you can use balled up pieces of green tissue paper as grass.
Optional: Glue a photo into the center of the flower.
Fill the inside of your card with hand drawn pictures, a photo, stickers or a message to the person you're giving your card to.
