Creating something special for Mother's Day doesn't have to be complicated or costly. It just needs to be created with Love.
Most kids love to finger paint - momstown does so much messy painting in our programs! What do you do with the pictures once created? Stick on the fridge? Throw it out? What if it's a giant mural? These are perfect for framing and keeping forever as artwork on the wall.
Grandma would love a framed print from her favourite artist to hang prominently in her home. Make it personalised to her decor and she'll love it more.
These pieces of artwork hang in my children's bedrooms but they would easily be used as a gift.
1. Pick the paint colours carefully based on where you want it to hang. My kids used colours that matched their bedspreads but if you want this to hang in Grandma's family room, kitchen or bathroom? Match the colours accordingly. Involve your child in the paint colour selection
2. Give your child loads of room to create. Make sure the paper is the right width and height to fill the frame you want. Let them be creative. Paint way more than you need, then you have lots to pick from as the "best section" to display.
3. After the painting is dry find the "best" part. Measure out the right size for your frame & cut it out.Have your child sign their artwork (or you sign their name & year for them).
4. Wrap it up for Grandma! Happy Mother's Day!!!
When your child gives this gift to Grandma he will be over-the-top proud! And everytime he visits her home to see his special work on display, he'll be even more proud! This might even become an annual tradition with a new picture to change up in the frame every year.
