garden catalogs or gardening books construction paper crayons or markers scissors (optional) glue (optional)
What to do:
- Let your child cut out pictures of flowers from garden catalogs, or draw pictures of flowers he sees in a gardening book on construction paper.
- If you are using cut-out flowers, let him paste them onto construction paper.
- As he draws or creates his collage, encourage your child to choose flowers that he associates with certain feelings that relate to Mother's Day. For instance, he may want to use daisies to represent happiness and roses to represent love.
- Let him give the finished picture or collage to his mother, grandmother, aunt or other special person as a Mother's Day "bouquet."
