How to make simple paper roses and beautiful roses for Mothers Day 19

I love Mother’s Day.  Yes it might be overly commercial, but it is a wonderful reminder for us all that Mothers are amazing.  Plus with two little boys in the house that love giving and making cards and gifts it is the perfect opportunity for them to express their creativity. As much as I adore homemade flowers such as our beautiful cake case daffodils, nothing beats roses.


Melted wax poppy craft, a remembrance day activity 15

Here’s an easy poppy craft, which is a great Remembrance Day activity for children. We have made a display of poppies and a paper plate poppy wreath, but you can use the same technique to make a poppy brooch by added a pin on the rear or a display of poppies for your home, church or school.  The mini mad’s will be taking the poppies to my mum’s grave in remembrance of her. These poppies were inspired by the fab wax paper flowers at Homegrown Friends. How to make melted wax poppies with Kids
