Mothers Day “I Love my Mum because…” Flower

You will need:
Coloured card
I Love My Mum printable template

Either draw a circle and six petals on the card, writing in the middle of the circle ‘I love my Mum because’ - or print out one of the templates on to the card.
Cut out your flower parts.
On each of the six petals, draw or write a reason why you love your Mother e.g "you read me stories", "you look after me when I'm ill"....
Glue the petals to the back of the circle and leave to dry.
You can now tape your flower to a drinking straw and pop in vase, I usually selloptape the straw to the back of the vase to steady it!
