A Free Printable Fill-In Poem for Mother's Day. It is fun to hear the answers to you kid's questions..

Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away. There are many things that us mother’s could get on Mother’s Day, a day at the spa, flowers, maybe jewelry or chocolates or perhaps just some time to take a much deserved nap. My favorite part of the day will still be to cuddle up with the ones that made me a mother in the first place.

My daughter & I had a little question and answer session that we turned into a customizable poem that I thought that you all might enjoy.

Andy Warhol Inspired Easter arts & crafts projects for kids with free printables for coloring or painting

A funny thing happened at my daughter’s preschool last week. One of the teachers mentioned to me that my daughter talks to her about all of the crafts that we do at home. She said to me in a very puzzled voice that my daughter was telling her about Kandinsky. This made me smile. I gave her a little lesson on Kandinsky last month and then did an art project with her inspired by his works. She remembered it well and when she sees circles now, she observes that they look like a Kandinsky. We did the same with Jackson Pollock last month & this weekend we learned about one of my personal favorites, Andy Warhol.

As usual, I explained to her a little about Mr. Warhol’s work and showed her some of his famous works. With Easter coming I used his inspiration to make a couple of printable sheets for painting or coloring.

I showed my daughter how bright and colorful his art was & that each section was painted in different colors. She was excited to dive in.

Free Printable mats for Play dough & for drawing inspiration for kids. Arts and crafts and creative activities

I have a play dough obsessed child. She loves all things play dough. Last year her birthday party was even, you guessed it, play dough themed.  We have tried many different play dough activities, but we have not really ever worked with play dough mats. Since my daughter loves making people, I thought that face mats would be a great idea for her.  Get your free printables at the end of the post.

We started with a lot of dough. We rolled out the colors that we wanted. It made it easier to work with.

I helped her get started with the face and showed her how to spread the play dough out.

She spread out her dough & formed little eyes & a mouth for her little girl. She used a plastic knife to cut away any excess. She wanted to give her a shirt too. She made sure that the shirt had a flower on it too. She did a great job.

Later that evening, she used wanted to draw on one too. She made a rainbow girl with rainbow hair. She was very proud.

Use laminate sheets over the printables to make them reusable. Laminate will make for easy clean up with the play dough. You could also use dry erase markers on it, to color & draw on it over and over again.
