I Love You a Bunch! Mother's Day Card Craft

Mother's Day Card Craft  www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Cardstock (Heavy weight paper)

Purple dotters, Ink pad, or purple paint, and a marker

 

How to make this Mother's Day Card:

1. Print out the grape leaf pattern * and cut apart.

Half page patterns

Full page pattern

Use dotters (You can use the kind they use for Bingo to mark the Bingo cards or you can buy them at Learning is Fun or other craft store.) to make the round grapes. If you don't have dotters, you can use your fingers and dip them in paint or an ink pad. You could also use a carrot that has the top cut off to dip in the paint or a round sponge to make the grape shapes.

2. Draw little faces on each grape to finish.

*If you want to make this a card, just cover up one side of the pattern and print only one grape leaf pattern. Fold the card in half and have the children write on the inside of the card.

Comments about this craft: I used the lesson "In Celebration of Mothers Day" in my Wednesday night class. We made the "bunch of grapes" card and the children loved it. When I couldn't find bingo blotters, I was worried about the mess of using an ink pad, but it worked out really great. We are fortunate enough to have our class adjoin the kitchen at our church. We made a sink full of warm soapy water and let the children use the ink in groups of three. As soon as they were done, they were ushered to the sink, and the ink came right off (even though the ink pad was marked "permanent"). When they weren't stamping, the other children were busy coloring their leaves and writing a note to Mom on the back of their cards. This was definitely a "keeper" craft for us. Thanks.
