Mothers Day Gift Idea for Prep or Kindergarten

With Mother's Day just around the corner I thought I'd share what my Prep class made their mums this week. 

I originally made these Bottle Blossom Trees a few years ago for an event my previous school. Click here to see that post.

Now, that I am teaching at a different school, I thought I'd re-use that idea to make a special artwork for Mother's Day. 

Students coloured in the tree stump and traced over the words:

Then printed using the bottom of a soft drink bottle. (Hint: You have to find bottles that have a flower pattern on the bottle- not all do).
Viola! The finished artwork:

You could also make the "trunk" thinner and colour it green for a bunch of flowers.
We also made cards for our mums. 
First we marble painted onto white paper, and cut out a heart shape:
Then we assembled the card and wrote a special message inside for mum.

I'd love to hear what you or your students made mum this year. Comment below!

Till next time, 
Stay Joyful
