Use this printable basket and flowers for a Mother’s Day present or use just the basket to bring home another craft. You may wish to increase the size of the basket and flowers for younger students as the flowers are small. My fifth grade students were able to do cut and color this with no trouble. The basket and flowers look much nicer when students cut right on the black lines. For this reason, I like to split the coloring and cutting up over a couple of days so students don’t loose patience with cutting.
Included are 3 versions of the same basket:
Happy Mother’s Day
You Are Very Special
Blank so students can personalize the basket
This Printable Basket of Flowers require the following supplies:
-1 sheet of card stock for the basket
-1 page of card stock for every two students if you choose to print the flowers
pipe cleaners (in the photo 5 were used and cut to various lengths)
-glue stick (to glue the basket)
-tape or liquid glue to adhere the pipe cleaners to the flowers (I like tape)
-oasis or a small chunk of styrofoam to glue inside the basket to stick the pipe cleaner
flowers into. In a pinch you could have students tape the pipe cleaner flowers to the bottom
of the basket.
-stapler to attach handler (more secure than glue)
Colour basket, flowers and hearts.
Cut around basket, heart and flowers.
Fold basket sides and flaps and add glue or tape to flaps. Flaps go to the inside.
4. Attach flowers and heart to pipe cleaner pieces using tape (or liquid glue - this will require several hours
5. Arrange flowers and heart in basket.
Use Easter grass or shredded paper to fill the basket and cover the styrofoam.
Note: Old version of this product is included in the zip file.
