Mother's Day Basket
For children of all ages, spring is an exuberant season, as flowers and grasses pop up in all their colorful glory. You can purchase Mother’s Day baskets, of course…but here’s a homemade paper basket that your kindergartener can make, while practicing patterning skills that are such a big part of her math curriculum. And now that it’s near the end of the year, she should be writing her own words and early sentences, too.
Help her make a Mother’s Day basket with her own handwritten message attached. Okay, if you’re the mom setting this up, it may spoil some surprise, but don’t forget: you can also make this one for grandma, or for some other really cherished maternal figure in your family’s life.
