Today’s craft is Mother’s Day inspired. I found it randomly while searching Pinterest and thought it was SO cute, but I don’t have a kid and I’m not around any here in NC. When I found out my friend Liz was coming down with her baby, I knew they’d love it! I mean, who comes to visit Aunt Becca and leaves without at least one craft?
Here’s what we used:
The cardboard I used was fairly thick, so I ended up having to cut it with an X-acto knife instead of normal scissors. I cut it so it would be small enough to hang up and light enough for a toddler to hold. Next, I used my permanent marker to draw a flower pot on it. There were a ton of different variations like vases and other styles of pots, but I liked this simple style. Because my cardboard was so thick, I had to cut the holes out with my x-acto knife, but hole punches would work for lighter cardboards. Honestly, if I didn’t have to cut them out like this, I would have added a lot more… but that is tedious work.
Once I had our flower pot done, we went on a walk to find some flowers. There are SO many dandelions, it was super easy to find a spot and have Addy pick some for her pot. She didn’t quite like putting them in the holes, but she set them on top… if she didn’t tear them apart first. The important thing is, she had fun and got to play in the sun! So if you have a toddler in your life and want to play in the flowers, this is a craft for you 😊 As always, if you take any fun pictures or videos, tag me on Instagram @SmileMakePeopleWonder and use the hashtag #DandelionSmiles.
