Want to be spoiled this Mother’s Day? Help your kids create a vase of flowers

Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday!!

Enjoy helping your kids to make this creative treat. Hang it on the fridge or cupboard. Make one for Grandma as well, she’ll love it.  Using water colours can be fun. Try experimenting with the amount of water added and watch the different shades appear. Spray a light sprinkling of perfume for a little something extra.
