Mother's Day Balloon Craft for kids

Mother's Day will soon be here!
If you're needing a cute and easy way to say I love you to the Mother's in your life, this craft is for you.

  • Washable Paint (aka: fingerpaint, tempera paint, poster paint) in any color.
  • White Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Craft Foam (any color)
  • Black Marker

Step 1: Paint a piece of paper in the color of your choice. You can use your fingers, a paintbrush, or anything you desire. Let the paint dry (overnight is good).

Step 2: Once it's all dry, fold the painted paper in half and cut out 3 heart shapes about 1-2 inches tall.

Step 3: Unfold the hearts and with a black marker write the words, "happy mother's day" -- one word on each heart.

Step 4: Cut out small pieces of craft foam and glue them to the back of the hearts. This will help them pop out a little bit.

Step 5: Glue the hearts to the top half of a piece of paper. Below the hearts, draw a stick figure.

Step 6: Next, draw lines from the bottom of each heart to the stick figure arm. These are the strings holding the "heart ballons." Then draw a small bow.

Step 7 (optional): You can leave your stick figure as is, or if you want, you can embellish it with a fancy hair-do!
