What Grandma doesn’t love a handmade card from their Grandkid(s)? Here is a craft that both my kids loved making while practicing several different developmental skills. The best part is that we had all the supplies at home, so no extra errands carting around your kids! It made for a great after nap time, before Daddy got home time killer.
Here is what you’ll need:
- Paper grocery bag (I cut the sides off)
- Tissue paper
- Blue (for sky) and Green (for the stems) Construction paper
- Paint and Paint Brushes (or just fingers, like my two year old finger painting lover)
Here’s how it’s done:
- Trace their cute little hand on the green construction paper.
- Have them paint away on the back of the paper grocery bag (and their face) while you cut out the hand.
- Let them crumble up the tissue paper (I precut them into small squares), then they can glue each “flower” to the tops of the “stems”.
- Once the paint is dry on the paper bag use a ruler to draw out a pot, then cut it out.
- They can then glue down their flower stems and pots onto the blue construction paper.
- I then made some labels on the computer, but you could easily just write straight on the construction paper. If you’d like to use the labels I made, CLICK HERE for the FREE printable. I backed the labels with some of the left over painted grocery bag.
Troy proud of his work!
While I had all the supplies out we also made a folded version with both their hands as a birthday card for a family member.
I hope your Mom (Grandma) loves it as much as I know mine will!
I also wanted to make something for my Mom just from me. I had seen this saying that I just love, so I bought a nice 5×5 picture frame (on sale!) and designed and printed the saying myself. If you’d like to do the same, CLICK HERE for the FREE printable.
Happy Mother’s Day to all!!!
