Well theres not much you can do apart from leave them alone for a hour or so to give the cat time to get sed to the kittens. If she stll wants nothing to do with them then i'm afraid it will be down to you to take over. This is rare but for some reason some cats just refuse to look after their kittens.

If you need some advice as to how best to look after yor kittens I do have some web pages with this information here
This is the first page of a few that can give you and over view of the care needed.

best wishes Kate
