Let’s Make a Mother’s Day Bouquet

 

Moms are the original rockstars. They show us how to make the perfect grilled cheese, they know how to fix any injury, and they tell the best nighttime stories! Let’s make a simple craft that you can customize; make your Mom’s favorite flower (roses, sunflowers, hibiscus?). Hold on…I thought I saw a StoryBot around here somewhere. Any-who, let’s make an easy Mother’s Day Bouquet using tissue paper (an idea from our Mother’s Day Activity Book)!

Time to make the stems. I used coffee stirrers, but you can try pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, straws, or pencils.

We need something to display our dazzling decor. I’ll use a cardboard tube and some construction paper. That looks like…hmm…never mind. Let’s craft!

tadaaaaa

Check out some shots of the final product. Floral finesse at it’s finest.

Let’s Make Cosmic Sun Catchers

 

It’s your time to shine… and decorate your windows with these Cosmic Sun Catchers. I made mine with using contact paper, but you can also make these using the traditional glue/water mixture and wax paper. If you’re using our method, here’s what you need:

Step 1: Print out the template that you’ll be using. For my example, I’ll be making the Sun.

Step 2: Tape the template to a flat surface and roll out contact paper, sticky side up. Then tape down the edges.

Step 3: Cut out tissue paper into small squares and cover the entire template area.

Step 4: Place another piece of contact paper onto the sun catcher, this time sticky-side down.

Step 5: Using the template as a guide, trim your sun catcher.

Step 6: Attach the eyes and mouth (For some characters, it’s easier to draw a mouth on with a marker). I also decided to cut out red triangles for the sun’s outline and sprinkle on some red “solar flares”.

Ta-daaa! Use double-stick tape to attach your creation to the window. Our template pack includes four stars, the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon. Craft them all to create a celestial scene!

Earth, Moon, Sun
