Mothers Day Flower Basket

Posted on

I’m about a month early, but I thought I would get a start on Mothers Day.

This craft is a cute mothers day flower basket that any mom would be happy to receive.

You can also use this as a cup holder by inserting a small Styrofoam cup into the flower basket.

Worrying about our needs is not trusting God. We want our kiddos to not worry about their needs, but rather trust God to take care of them.

Make sure you clarify to the kiddos what those needs are. You find them in the context of the passage. “…as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.” Matthew 6:25 We don’t want our kids going home thinking God promises to get them a new Xbox 🙂

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “ Matthew 6:33

Seek Ye First

Instructions

  1. Paint a paper plate blue.

  3. Trace the templates onto construction paper.
  4. Glue on the nest to the paper plate.
  5. Then decorate the nest with strips of construction paper, hay, craft feathers, small leaves, or string.
  6. Next glue on the eggs. As many as you choose.

If the kiddos choose to they can add paper flowers, leaves, or even tissue paper onto the tree branch.
