While subbing in art rooms during the early 1990's, I would take notes on the different art lessons that teachers did with their students. Not get into files or anything like that, mostly snoop through art books or look on shelves at what they were doing. That's how I came across this really great Mother's Day project. And I must say one of my favorite lessons! Materials list: Two 9"x12" pieces of green construction paper (also works well with 2 different shades of green paper), assorted scraps of colored paper, glue-your choice liquid or stick, stapler, scissors, yarn or ribbon, ruler and pencil.
This next step is a little tricky, however, don't stress over it. Each of the green papers need to be glued. The trick is to glue with the edges about an inch apart. See photo. Using a glue stick is neater. Or tell students they need to hold it down, after gluing it for a count of 50.......
Now you have a bouquet of stems....time to make the flowers!!
Yarn or ribbon can be tied around the bottom of the flowers to finish the bouquet.
There you have it! Something quick and simple for Mother's Day. Let me know if you try it!
I can't believe it BUT this is my 50th post! And, I have had over 8560 page views!
