You will need bright colored construction paper (pink, yellow, or light blue), wine corks, marshmallows, and paint. I chose pink and purple. You really can use any color.
I make sure I stress to my parents that they are not to help their little ones, let them stamp any way they want. I had some friends who stamped nothing but perfect circles and one friend who used the marshmallow to paint her entire page; it looked like a sunset. All of them were beautiful. Once the paint dried I added the simple statement about moms.
A few of my friends even decided they loved the way the paint felt and colored their faces!
We finished off the day with the book Does A Kangaroo Have A Mother, Too? by Eric Carle. It is a simple book with great illustrations (of course). Each page names a different animal which I had my friends tell me what it was and what sound it made.
Here are a few other Mother's Day activities that my favorite bloggers are doing:
A cute bouquet at the Trendy Treehouse
A dandelion Bouquet at Small Potatoes
Coffee Filter Flowers at Hands On As We Grow
These are just a few. If you are on Pinterest visit us at the Kid Blogger Network Board for more ideas for your little ones.
