Mums for Moms is a great craft to use at church with kids this Mother’s Day!
Have kids make these colorful flowers for the special women in their lives this Mother’s Day.
For each child you’ll need a foam cup, a craft stick, and three coffee filters. You’ll also need newspapers, paper towels, scissors, washable markers, clear tape, green construction paper, and a water-filled spray bottle.
Before kids arrive, cover the work area with newspaper and cut a small slit in the bottom of each foam cup. Have kids fold their coffee filters in half and color both sides with markers. Then have them unfold the filters and lightly spray them with water to blend the colors. Use paper towels to remove excess water, then set aside to dry.
Have kids decorate their cups with markers, color their craft stick green, and cut out green construction paper leaves. Tell kids to lay their coffee filters, one on top of the other, then bunch the filters together in the center to form the flower. Tape the flower at the top of the craft stick. Fluff out the filters to form flower petals. Then have kids push the craft stick stem into the hole on the craft cup and tape the leaves to the craft stick.
