Warli Art For Kids

Today, I have Malini sharing with us these beautiful warli painting ideas that kids can make. She is a really sweet and talented art teacher here in the bay area.

Warli art ideas for kids

Warli painting is an ancient tribal art (10th century AD) originated in Maharashtra (India). These paintings use a set of basic geometric shapes: a circle, a triangle, and a square. These shapes are symbolic of different elements of nature.

It's amazing to see how they depict their tribal life through some basic patterns. My daughter enjoyed learning these warli patterns with Malini and was proud to show off her work to everyone.

Heart Paper Flower Craft

As a parent of a kindergarten, preschool or daycare child, you often have opportunities to express your gratitude to their teachers for their love and care in the school. This could be more formal in the form of teacher appreciation days or casual when you feel like it. Teachers work very hard to take care of our children and they deserve our unreserved appreciation.

Easy paper flower preschool crafts

Last week was bring a flower day at our daughter's preschool, this mother-daughter duo decided to make this very lovely heart flower paper craft. We loved how easy and elegant these ended-up looking.

They were easy and quick to make and after the paper cutting something our daughter could put together on her own. She quite enjoyed putting the paper hearts and pipe cleaners together for the beautiful look. Our daughter took these to school in the morning and gave a flower to each of her teachers with a thank you hug!

Mother's Day Cootie Catcher

Raise your hand if you have made a cootie catcher when you were a kid. Well, I have! 🙋. They go by multiple names like a paper fortune teller or chatterbox and a couple more.

If you don't know, a cootie catcher is a form of origami paper folding game. Parts of the cootie catcher are labelled with colors or numbers for players to choose from and the inside has a message or action item for the players. Based on the number or color the player chooses, the cootie catcher needs to be adjusted.

If you're looking for a fun preschool activity for mother's day, this cootie catcher is just a perfect mothers day ideas for kids.

What I love about this activity is that kids can spell each word out loud as they open and close the cootie catch. so LOVE would mean open and close 4 times. Also, older kids can spell the color out too. There are some really sweet activities that kids can do for their mothers as they play the game.

Isn't it a wonderful way to wish Happy Mother's Day?
