Adding a heart to each handprint is easy:
dip your finger into yellow paint and make a small "v"
|These forever bouquets are SO beautiful!|
Mothers Day PoemHere is the very sweet poem my children will recite at the Tea Party for their moms. I've included the motions that accompany it in parenthesis. Hopefully they all make sense! Before reciting the poem, the children will walk into the room and place their artwork face down on the floor in front of them. During the very last line, children will bend over to quickly pick up their "forever bouquets" and hold them out toward their mothers.
Mothers Day Poem
I will love you forever (children hug themselves)
and forever you will be
the most wonderful mother. (open arms like a rising sun)
You mean everything to me. (point to themselves with both thumbs)
I thought of buying you flowers (rub fingers together like you're holding money)
in the usual way, (hold arms out near shoulders - look bored)
but I knew you would prefer
a FOREVER bouquet. (reach down to pick up flower artwork)
