Painted Flower Pots
Preschool age children love to paint and watch things grow. Have the children paint miniature clay flowerpots with tempera paint. They can decorate them however they please. Put potting soil in their pots and provide them with flower bulbs, seeds or actual growing flowers to plant in the pots. Give them each a string or ribbon and a small index card with a hole punched in the corner.
Help them write the following on the index card:
Dear Mom, I planted this flower because I love you.
Then below that, this bible verse can be written to go along with it:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud." 1 Corinthians 13:4
When that is finished, they can string the ribbon through the hole and tie it around the flowerpot. Preschool age children will more than likely need help tying. Children can give this gift to their mothers to enjoy for the upcoming weeks.
