A fun, effective art activity for your students to complete and give to their mother on Mother’s Day.

It looks tricky …. but it is very simple! The artwork involves drawing a number of straight lines between the dots on a template. Your students will get a thrill when the curves just appear!

♦ dotty template.
♦ template with lines (this can be used to show the completed design, or for a ‘colouring only’ activity).
♦ example of finished, coloured artwork.
♦ simple, clear instructions (with images).

I have provided 8 steps to complete the line art. Each step is on one page. The instructions are suitable for displaying via a data projector so all of your students can refer to it and self-check.

The Process:
♦ Draw the lines.
♦ Draw a stem, leaves, flower pot, etc.
♦ Write words/phrases in the petals that describe your Mother.
♦ Colour/decorate.
♦ Give to your Mother.

This activity is also suitable as a general art activity. You don’t have to use it for Mother’s Day.

Have a student that doesn’t celebrate Mother’s Day? No problem. They can make the flower and decorate it in a different way.

Skill enhancement: ruling straight lines with precision.

Keywords: parabolic curves, string art, line art, geometry, flower, math, ruler, straight lines.
