A few years ago at Preschool the teachers made the cutest flower pots for the Moms. They used the kids handprints and decorated the pots, then with paint pen we wrote around the rim.
The green pots were for the monkey class, they made their little hands into monkeys hanging from a vine. The thumb was the neck and body and the fingers were the legs and arms. For the handprints we used regular tole painting paint. Tempra won’t dry on the pot surface.
The red and teal pots were the butterfly classroom, so we made the kids hands into butterflies! I love how they turned out so abstract!
In the pots we planted lilies. Another idea is to plant an herb garden, with a few different kinds of herbs.
This would make a cute craft for your kids to do for Grandma on Mother’s day!
