Mothers Day 2015

To wish the children's mummies a happy mothers day we decided to make them a nice colourful gift. We started with some basic plant pots, some tissue paper and glue and, of course some primroses to brighten our pots when they were finished. 

 Using our Mod-Podge glue the children covered their pots and began to stick pieces of tissue paper on. They are still a little unsure about mod-lodge as it dries on their fingers and then they have to peel it off! They did a great job of making a colourful collage on their pots and I placed a layer of varnish over the top to help to protect the pots for the next stage!

We took our pots into the garden and the children used small spades to fill their pots with soil. We talked about why plants needed soil to grow as well as the importance of watering plants. The children chose the coloured flowers that they wanted and the older ones helped take them out of the containers. They moved the soil with their hands and patted it down around their plants. The results were beautiful and the children were so proud to take their gifts for their mummies.
