mother's day family diorama

Step 1
Project Note: Have a child tell a miniature diorama story about mom.
 
Paint the clay saucer with mom's favorite color. Apply two coats of paint for a finished look. Let completely dry. 
 
TIP: ADULT: You can speed up dry time with a hair dryer. 
Step 2
Add Model Magic® to the inside of the saucer to resemble grass. 
Step 3
Draw a mom and family small enough to fit in the diorama. Also draw larger flowers, trees, a house or anything that is a reminder of mom. 
Step 4
Cut out the small drawings into separate pieces. 
Step 5
Use tape to attach the mini wood dowels to the back of the separate drawings.
 
TIP: ADULT: If the mini dowel is too long for the drawing, break it into shorter pieces. 
Step 6
Place the drawings into the Model Magic® to create the scene of the diorama.
