Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Mother's Day Crafts For Kids Saturday May 7, Children Will Make Mother's Day Bouquet Cards And Paper Muffin Liners, Please RSVP By May 5

Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Coordinator Eva Bosbach reports:

Dear RI parents,

We would like to invite you to another event in the free "Crafts with Kids" series by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network.

Join us for "Mother's Day Craft" next Saturday, May 7, 10-11 AM at the Senior Center, 546 Main Street.

For this Mother's Day we will give Moms a bouquet that they can treasure long past Mother's Day. Children will create bouquet cards by cutting their pictures into circles and adhere them to the inside bottoms of paper muffin liners. We will cut stems and leaves and form them -- with the liners -- into picture blossoms on a card stock background. Inside the card there will be a message " I love my mommy because . . . " and children can write a special message for their moms.

In addition, the children will make a necklace out of colored pasta noodles. The children can string the pasta and then use hearts as stoppers for the noodles.

The children will also be making bouquets for the mothers who will be attending the Mother's Day Brunch in the Senior Center the same day between 11am and 1pm.

Natalia will be leading our Mother's Day Crafts. Thank you Natalia! Another thank you goes to Dolores Green, Barbara Parker, Wendy Hersh and Marylin Atkins from the Senior Center for letting us use their space for the event.

Please RSVP to eva.bosbach@gmail.com by Thursday, May 5.

We are looking forward to seeing you,

Natalia, Neha and Eva
