Handprint Bowl

Category Art and Craft

This wonderful craft using salt dough is the best creative and useful gift that the kids could make and gift their mothers this Mother’s Day. They can be used to keep tiny objects like rings or keys or some other nick-nacks. Apart from mothers they could even gift it to their fathers on Father’s Day. The fathers could use them to keep their cuff lings, keys, etc. Wow! Such a useful piece of art it is. And the best part is it has a personalised touch of the child in it.

Footprint Heart

Category Art and Craft

Bored of trying a lot of finger and palm print crafts? Then this one is for you! If you haven’t tried a footprint craft yet this footprint heart craft is the one you must try. It’s such a simple idea but makes a beautiful keepsake you can cherish for so many years. Yes, indeed this would make a great gift for the mothers as they would be surprised to see their little munchkins wish them with this beautiful piece of craft. And I bet its worth the little mess it creates!

Flower Magnets

Category Art and Craft

This wonderful activity which involves the salt dough preparation and then making of flowers using them and then making magnets with these flowers is very interesting. Though a long process, children will enjoy doing it for their mothers. To start with the activity, you can simply ask the children if they could correlate their mums with flowers. Let them speak out and say what they find common in both – the flowers and their mums. This will build their capacity to form sentences and speak out their thoughts. At the same time, we are introducing them to the activity as well.

A sweet flower bouquet full of a child's fingerprints that can be kept forever.

Materials Needed:

  • Coloured paper.
  • Acrylic paint – pink, red, purple, blue, yellow, etc.
  • Green marker
  • Ribbon
  • Glue dots
  • Scissors

What to do:

  • Begin by making a square from the cardboard.
  • Fold one corner up until it makes a triangle. Then trim away the excess paper.
  • Unfold the triangle and place in front of you like a diamond. Fold one side over where it makes a point on the bottom. Then fold the other side, overlapping the first side, meeting at the point on the bottom.
  • Fold the overlapped points back. Then fold into place to make sure it’s positioned correctly.

  • Unfold the front flaps of the paper and begin making flowers.
  • Simply dip a child's fingertip into each coloured paints and dab the paper with dots
  • Let the flowers dry.
  • Use the green marker to draw stems and leaves down from the flowers
  • Finish the flower bouquet by cutting a strand of ribbon. Apply a glue dot to stick to the back of the paper and keep in place.

Hints and Tips:
