Mother’s Day Vase Kids’ Craft
Are you looking for a crafty way to celebrate Mother’s Day? Kids can create a hand-decorated vase that they then fill with fresh cut flowers. This easy art activity is perfect for kids in preschool and up. Along with being a fun way to tell mom, “I love you” on her special day, it also doubles as a recycling/reuse project. Use a mason jar or wash out another type of glass jar (such as a spaghetti sauce jar) for this project.
- Glass jar
- Tissue paper
- Clear-drying school glue
- A paintbrush
- Make sure that the jar is completely clean and dry before beginning the art-making process.
- Cut tissue paper (use several different colors) into approximately 2×2-inch squares or other shapes. Cut out a larger-sized heart to put on the front of the vase.
- Paint a layer of glue on the outside of the jar.
- Press the tissue onto the glue, overlapping the edges.
- Add the heart to the front.
- Paint a second layer of clue onto the jar, covering all of the tissue. This helps to attach the loose edges, seal the collage and add an extra layer of shine.
Let the Mother’s Day vase dry overnight. Fill it with water and flowers as a present for mom!
