INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Print out the background page for Mom’s Love Is…
  • Cut a stem and leaves out of green construction paper. Children could also use a green crayon to draw and color in the flower stem and leaves.
  • Color in the outlined words for Mom’s Love Is.
  • Have the children write in six descriptors of what Mom’s Love is to them. See example above.
  • Select the printout for Flower. This can also be printed on white paper and traced onto construction paper.
  • Cut out the inside of one of the petals as shown.
  • Select the printout for Petals. This should be on the same color of paper that the background page was printed on.
  • Cut out the petals. Note – only 5 of the petals will be used.
  • Glue the 5 petals onto the flower as shown above.
  • With the scissors, put a small hole into the center flower on the background page.
  • With the hole punch (going in through the cut out petal) put a hole into the center of the flower.
  • I used a white paper reinforcer to strengthen the hole on the flower, but this may not be necessary.
  • Attach the flower to the background with the paper fastener (brad).
