Mother’s Day is less than one week away. Are you looking for a last-minute craft for your kiddos? If you are, you’ll love this post!
We don’t have any children (yet), but I helped my sister-in-law Anne with her Mother’s Day craft. (It’s supposed to be from her 21-month-old daughter Ana, but of course we ended up doing all the work.)
Anne found the idea on Pinterest, and I think it’s quite adorable. Kudos if you can get your child to sit still long enough to put paint on the bottoms of their feet and press their feet onto the flower pot. My niece wouldn’t have any part of that, so we made paper cutouts of Ana’s feet.
We positioned the cutouts on the flower pot and lightly traced them with a pencil. Then we used paint brushes and acrylic paint to fill them in and draw the butterfly’s body.
Once we finished the first flower pot, we spent a few moments admiring our handiwork and proceeded to make seven more. (In addition to her mom, Ana has two grandmothers, three great-grandmothers, and two great-great-grandmothers.)
The flower pots we used were seven inches tall, but you will want to measure your child’s feet before going to the store. This craft works for children of any age! (Click here to see the “grownup craft” that my husband made for our moms.)
