Do you know for sure it's 3 kitties she has? By my reckoning, the kitties are approx. 3 weeks old now, so I would just put them in a box, show momacat the kitties in the box and lead her to your garage. I'm sure she will be happy with that. If she lags behind, keep showing them to her, but don't let her jump in the box before you get them to the garage and close the door, as she'll likely grab a kitten by the scruff of the neck and jump out with it to take it back to her old spot.
It's important to handle the kittens as much as possible to socialize them properly to human contact. The kitties need to be handled, petted, picked up and played with. If they're not handled they can remain "wild" and then it's much more difficult to tame them.
Kitties can be offered kitten cat food (canned) when they're around 4-5 weeks of age, and will likely be weaned by 7-8 weeks. Momacat should eat the kitten food too so she will have lots of milk. Have water available for them to drink (no milk). When kitties are all eating well on their own then you should get momcat spayed. Have a litter tray available that has low sides so that they can climb into it easily (say not taller than 3"). Use ordinary litter, not the clumping kind, as some kitties will eat it and get a bowel blockage. Good luck!
