A collection of my three FAVORITE Mother's Day projects from the past 12 years! Guaranteed to become a timeless treasure for the special mom or grandma in your student's life! Everything you need to get started is right here!
There are so many sweet projects you can do with your little ones to help them show their love and appreciation for the special ladies in their lives! I’ve done these with Kindergarten and 1st graders, but I’m sure they’d work for a little older kids, too. You could choose your favorite or do them all… it’s totally up to you. The kids will love being able to do something special for their mom or grandma…. And every one of these is sure to become a treasure that she will keep forever.
I believe in giving teacher's lots of styling options (so you can choose why you like AND what works best for your kids!) so you'll see you have a couple different choices for what you'd like to print to go along with each individual project.
Here is a quick list of the three projects:
1. The “I love you to pieces” puzzle piece pin project (directions and photos to guide you through how to make this adorable craft... and also several printables you can use to display and give it.)
|Check it out! I'm wearing the pin here... made by my sweet baby, Elli!|
2. The CLASSIC “My Special Mother” fill-in-the-blank writing and picture project (Prepare to giggle over the things kids say for this and also the book project below! Precious... and oh, so simple for you.) Did you make something like this for your mom when you were little? I know I did and my mom still has it somewhere! I just did this activity with my class today and here are a few samples for you to smile about.... AND I even added another line to my TpT file after we did this-- the latest version also lets them have a chance to say how mom likes to relax... lol. THAT could be funny! :)
|This mom wouldn't even be traded for a monkey! Wow! :)|
|LOVE this sweet artwork-- look at their shirts!|
|"She is as pretty as a bride!"|
|This momma couldn't even be traded for donuts! :)|
|I wouldn't trade my mother for a penny. Yesssss!|
|"She weighs a few pounds, I wouldn't trade her for a stuffed animal, and she's like a flower blooming in the Spring." Oh- and look at their shirts! "dodr" and "mom" <3|
|"She is as pretty as a ladybug and I wouldn't trade her for a unicorn!"|
|To wrap it up, we just folded the page in half and put some words and hearts on the front...|
3. The “All About My Mom” book project (Again, easy peasy to print and use! Kids fill in the blanks and draw pictures to finish phrases like "If my mom were a super hero she would be ________ because _______" or "If my mom were an animal she would be a __________ because ___________.")
Flip through them and see what would work best with your students and the time you have! Oh, and note that all of the projects come with pages that say "grandma" or "grandmother" as well as "mom" or "mother." Options for everyone!
Happy Mother’s Day! Thanks for stopping by!
