The month of May gives us many things to be thankful for, especially mothers and beautiful spring flowers. Here at the library, we’ve combined the two and have created a Mother’s Day flower magnet that any mother will love!
Miss Melanie held a “Make-It Take-It” on Sunday, May 12th from 1-4 pm, where children could make a craft for their mothers, and she took some great photos of the process. In addition to the craft, she also had some coloring pages available that children could color and give to their mothers for the special day.
You can make this simple craft at home if you missed out on the program at the library!
- 8 small craft sticks (or recycled popsicle sticks) glued together like a fence
- magnet strips to stick on the back (you could use an old magnet cut into strips)
- flannel, foam or paper cutouts of flowers, butterflies & leaves
- sparkly embellishments like sequins, buttons, and glitter
To finish, just attach all the items to the sticks with a dab of craft glue (white school glue will work, too) and hang on the fridge!
