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.
