Count Your Blessings

Hello there!  I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my blog.  Why not follow along via e-mail or “like” Creative Preschool Resources on Facebook?

Now for the Mother’s Day craft idea I promised yesterday.  I always attempt to make something that I’d actually like to see in my own home.  This is a cute sign for holding pics of “BLESSINGS”.  This is perfect for Mother’s Day, birthdays, Christmas or Teacher Appreciation gifts.

The kiddos did their own background paintings on decorative boards from Pick Your Plum.  Then, I distressed the edges for them.  They get to choose their own clothespins and Mod Podge on the “Count Your Blessings” sign.

So super cute and colorful!  I hope the Moms love it!

I also made a couple other versions for Teacher appreciation week.  This one is for my son’s FABULOUS Kindergarten teacher.  I just love her!

Another shot because you can never have too many pictures of a project.

I used vinyl for the lettering on these versions.

The one below is for my daughter’s Second Grade teacher.  She is also absolutely wonderful and has many blessings in her life.

Simple and cute.  I just love this teal color.  You could easily make something similar out of a simple square or rectangle of scrap wood at Home Depot and add some cute clothespins.

Happy crafting!

Mother’s Day Interview

Happy Monday!  The weeks are flying by, holy cow it’s almost summer break.  Yikes!  Sunday is Mother’s Day and in order to make something for the Moms of the kiddos in our class we have to work on it a little bit each day.

This year we’re making a card for Mother’s Day with a simple interview.  I always love hearing the kids silly answers to these questions.  I ask the kids to draw their best picture of their Mom or Grandma in the top section and then I interview them and write their answers on the bottom section.  I made a color version and a black and white version as well as a Grandma version depending on the child’s home situation.

Tomorrow I’ll share our Mother’s Day gifts that we’re making for our Moms.  Happy Mother’s Day (almost).
