This delightful kid made table setting is brought to us by Val from Val Events Gal. The kids will have a great time creating it, and the end result is gorgeous. It’s absolutely perfect for Mother’s day.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to get my daughter involved in the decorating and planning for the day. She loves painting with watercolors so I thought it would be fun for us to make some decorations and crafts for Mother’s Day.
This kid made table setting is perfect for Mother’s Day and a simple way to decorate for celebrations. I think any time you can include kids in making decorations it saves time and money.
I often integrate party decorations into our craft time. Luckily my daughter and I both love crafts!
We made watercolor necklace napkin rings and watercolor hearts to decorate the table. You could also make watercolor place mats by having kids paint with watercolors on white card stock paper then lamenting the paper.
What You Need For An Easy Kid Made Table Setting:
I had my daughter paint her watercolor creations on a few sheets of paper. Once it was dry we cut the paper out into small hearts. You could also cut flower shapes.
Then we punched two holes in both sides of the top of the hearts and pulled the ribbon through. You could just wrap ribbon around it but this way it is a napkin ring and a necklace.
Wrap the ribbon around a rolled up paper napkin and tie a bow in the front above the heart. My daughter rolled up the napkins and I tied the bows.
You can then have your child write the names of who is coming as a place card.
Since my daughter is still learning how to write I had her write just one letter M for Mom G for Grandma. You can just have kids write names for the moms, since they are special guests!
This is an easy table setting for kids to make and they feel good knowing they contributed to helping mom. I also had my daughter put a couple of fake flowers in a vase, so easy.
My daughter seriously loves to set the table and this was a fun way for her to make it more festive. We made tons of hearts to spread the Mother’s Day love all around the table and party.
This is fun for a family Mother’s Day party or mother, daughter tea party.
Are you creating something special and fun this Mother’s Day?
