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. A lovely Mother's Day craft for kids! 

Supplies:

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. Just like we did in our Lego Birthday Invitations!




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!




ALL DONE!



HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

*P.S. The best finger paints around are by Crayola. They are the perfect consistency. Not too runny and not too thick. And best of all they are completely washable--and so easy to wipe off tables, fingers, and wash out of clothes. I HIGHLY recommend them for painting crafts with kids. 
And there is a great deal on Amazon right now to get a nice set of 12 different colors. In big bottles that you can use for a LONG time! Check it out!
