Mother's Day Flower Pot Reusing Yogurt Cups







For Mother's Day, we decided to reuse empty yogurt cups. We painted the cups with a terracotta paint. While we waited for the cups to dry, the children made pom poms out of yarn scarps.

Cardboard and Crepe Paper Valentines



               


I cut out heart shapes out of cardboard. Cardboard proved to be too thick for first graders to cut out on their own. We traced the heart on to colored printer paper cut it out and glued it to the cardboard. The children made crepe paper balls and glued them on to the heart. Made two hole and strung white satin ribbon and made a bow (leave some slack for hanging).
