Last spring when Mom and Dad were visiting, it happened to correspond with Mother’s Day in North America. Mom was sweet and did a quick craft with Tristan and Kallista for me, making a pretty posy wrap.
It’s so easy to make this, all you need are scissors, paper, and tape.
Cut your piece of paper into a square. You can use any paper – plain, coloured, patterned, a page from a colouring book, gift wrap, origami paper, or even newspaper.
If the kids want to draw on the paper and make a picture, do that before the next step. Stickers and other embellishments may be added at any time.
Roll the paper into a cone shape and use a little tape to hold it in place.
Then Mom took the kids outside and helped them choose a few flowers to cut. They put the flowers into the posy wrap and brought them in to me for Mother’s Day.
They’re so sweet!
What a simple and thoughtful gift to receive from my children. They liked the experience so much that they kept the posy wraps and reused them over again during the summer.
If you have many flowers in your garden in the summer, this would also be a lovely way to present a small bouquet of flowers to friends and neighbours as well, which is just what they are doing in this last photo. I do hope that they were able to brighten up the afternoons of a couple of the ladies on our street.
