It’s almost that wonderful time of year — the time when we honor moms and mother figures for their care, love, and support. With the world we’re living in, you may be worried that not all of your students will be able to complete a craft or gift to give to their mothers while they’re undertaking remote learning. But don’t fear; there’s a perfect Mother’s Day craft for kids learning in the classroom and kids who are remote schooling!

Take a look at this beautiful flower craft for kids – Fabulous Florals – Paper Towel Roses Craft Activity.

This flower craft for kids is a quick, easy, and engaging activity that can be completed anywhere – even at home. It’s also a great science experiment, teaching kids about how colored water travels through the tiny gaps between cellulose fibers in paper towels. Flower Craft for Kids - Paper Towel Roses

You can choose an eclectic, multi-colored style or a more traditional single-color rose. Want to incorporate a lesson on primary and tertiary colors? You can combine colors for an even more exciting bunch!

The wonderful thing about this activity is that it can be completed independently (depending on the age of the child of course!). That means that moms in isolation don’t have to make their own Mother’s Day roses even if students are learning remotely.

Tip: It might be a good idea to wear an apron or art shirt, and to complete this activity outside so that you don’t risk staining anything with food coloring.
