How To Make a Recycled Vase for Mother’s Day
Store-bought Mother’s Day presents are not on the agenda this year. So how can your kiddos celebrate mom? A handmade gift shows mom how much her little ones love her. Don’t worry if you’re short on arts and crafts supplies. This easy art activity includes reused everyday items!
Materials You’ll Need
- A reused large-sized plastic container- choose an old yogurt or cottage cheese type of container
- Fabric scraps- cut apart old towels, shirts or any other fabric item you have on hand
- Clear-drying school glue
How To Crafting Steps
- Thoroughly wash and dry the container.
- Wash and dry the fabric. Cut the pieces into shapes. This is the perfect time to talk about geometry with your child. As them to make circles, squares, rectangles, triangles and other shapes.
- Glue the fabric onto the outside of the container collage style. Overlap the edges, vary the directions of the shapes and alternate colors of fabric.
- Let the fabric dry completely.
- Cut a strip of ribbon and tie it around the top of the container. Your child can dab glue underneath to make the ribbon stick.
Now your child has a creative vase to give to mom on her special day. Fill the vase with candy, fresh cut flowers, painted stones or anything else your child wants to add.
