The gifts that mommies enjoy the most are those that come from their children.
Below are three easy crafts you can create with just a few inexpensive materials.
I love you to pieces card.
- Pink construction paper
- A variety of tissue paper colors
What I enjoy most about this activity is that the creation looks fancy, but you could create it easily with a few simple materials.
Start by folding the pink construction paper in half. Add the words “I love you to pieces” to the cover.
Draw a heart on the cover and then cut it out completely. Set the heart aside.
Have the kids tear small pieces of tissue paper. The kids will enjoy fulfilling this part as they also strengthen their fine motor development. Ensure that they are tearing every color so that they could have unique pieces to select from.
Next, add glue dots to the heart and have the kids glue the small pieces of tissue paper.
The main goal of this activity is for the children to have fun but monitor the way they are gluing the pieces to ensure each color is glued separately from each other.
Then, glue a piece of yarn on the back of the heart to make it a heart ornament. Next, place the heart inside the card and complete. The children should have finished a craft that will surely bring some color into a mommy’s life.
Don’t forget to photograph the children during this activity and share the creation through Child Journal for the parents to see.
