I went to the grocery store yesterday after work & as it is every year at this time, the outside sidewalk of the store was covered with pots of different colored mums. I love mums & in the fall you can find them just about everywhere.
My daughter has been learning a lot about different flowers & plants lately. She recognizes black-eyed Susans, gladiolus, asters & some others. Last night she learned about mums too.
Fingerprint Potted Fall Mums
All you will need for this craft is green & orange construction paper, paint (fall color of your choice), glue & a green & orange magic marker.
Cut the orange construction paper into the shape of a flower pot & cut the green paper into a oval-shaped plant. Glue them to another piece of paper.
Draw a few straggly leaves coming out of your plant & draw a rim around your pot.
Have your child dip a finger into the paint. My daughter wanted to dip every finger.
Have them press their finger one at a time all around the green oval to form your mums.
Have them stamp on as many flowers as they want to create their mums.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Aw, so pretty and just saw mums being sold at our local grocery store believe it or not yesterday. Fall is coming whether I like it or not, I suppose 😉
