Toe-tally Awesome Toe Print Mother's Day Card Craft

"Mom, I toe-tally love you! Toe Print Mother's Day Card Craft for Toddlers and preschoolers from www.daniellesplace.com

This craft makes a great keepsake for moms!

What you will need:

Card Stock (Heavy Paper)

Ink Pads or Easy-to-clean-up Paint

(We used the Melissa & Doug Jumbo Multi-Color Stamp Pad

Markers

Newspapers or a Drop Cloth

 

How to Make the "Toe-tally Awesome!" Toe Print Mother's Day Card Craft:

Mom, We toe-tally think you are Awesome! Craft using dog  and children toe prints from www.daniellesplace.com ©2016

1. Cover your working area with newspapers or a drop cloth.

2. Have your toddler press the balls of his or her feet onto the stamp pad and then press them on the card stock. If you are using paint, paint a thin layer over a sheet of paper and have your children press the ball of their feet into the paint. (You can also use your pets paw prints if you can get them to cooperate!)

3. If the finished toe print paper looks kind of messy, you can cut out the toe prints when the paint or ink is dry and glue them to another piece of paper.

4. To finish have your children write a "toe-tally awesome" saying on their papers, and then add smiley faces and other embellishments. You may also want to frame the picture.

Here are some examples:

Mom, you're toe-tally awesome!

Mom, you're toe-tally cool!

Mom, I'm toe-tally crazy about you!

Mom, I Love You Toe-tally!

3D Foam Flowers with Printable Note Mother's Day Craft Kids Can Make

3D Foam Flowers with Note Mother's Day Craft Kids Can Make www.daniellesplace.com

This craft uses foam flower stickers and a low temp. glue gun to achieve a 3D effect. If you have younger children that should not use a glue gun, you can just have them layer the stickers to make the 3D effect.

Children can attach a note to their flowers that say, "Mom, thanks for helping your little bud bloom." on the front.

On the back of the note it says, "Bud - an immature or undeveloped person. Bloom - to flourish or thrive.

What you will need:

Striped Pipe Cleaners

Foam Stickers 5-Ounce, Black Light Flowers

Craft Foam

foam flower stickers

Assorted colors of Small Pom Poms

Colored Card Stock

Hole Punch

 

How to Make the 3D Flowers:

1. Find three or four foam flower stickers and a pom pom that look nice together and that can be layered on top of each other.

2. Start by making the center of the flower. If you are using the type of flower with wide petals, you can make the petals look curved by gluing the base of the petals together. Glue one petal at a time. Place a small dot of glue with a low temp. glue gun at the base of the petal. Squeeze the sides of the petal together until the glue cools. Once you have glued the petals you can glue a pompom in the center of the flower. Make the next layer the same way or use a different type of flower.

3. If you don't want the petals to curve up, you can just glue a pom pom to the center of the flower and then glue each petal up to the sides of the pom pom. Add another flower to the bottom of that flower. By gluing the center of the flower to the bottom of the first flower. Place a dot of glue on each petal and glue it to the under side of the first flower's petals.

4. Cut leaf shapes from the craft foam and glue them to the back of the flowers.

5. To make the stem, fold a pipe cleaner in half and wind one end of the pipe cleaner into a circle and glue it to the back of the flower. Wind one half of the pipe cleaner around the other and glue the end to the bottom of the flower.

6. Make a note on a 3/4" by 3" sheet of paper that says, "Mom, thanks for helping your little bud bloom" on one side and "Bud - an immature or undeveloped person. Bloom - to flourish or thrive" on the other. Punch two holes in one side and thread the stems through the holes.
