Hello again, it's Ayn from little illuminations! Mother's Day is this weekend (it crept up on me from out of nowhere!) and I thought I would share what some of our classrooms have planned for Mother's Day gifts this year. I am always inspired when I walk down the hall and see what is going on in other classrooms!
This sweet Mother's Day card is sweet and simple--just a painted handprint and a cutout heart with the message: "I ♡ Mommy!". This will be laminated so the keepsake will last a lifetime!
This sweet craft foam plant pot with arm as a stem and foam flower embellishments was made from a store-bought kit but could easily be made with craft foam. The children dictated the reason they loved their mom. A treasure for sure!
This little card with fingerprint flowers is just adorable! Here's the poem:
This pretty flower that you see was made for you by little me. My finger made the flower part, showing love from all my heart!
I think this little bookmark is perfect! I am always reading and usually have several books going at one time. This would be perfect! (hint, hint, children of mine! ;)
The same class made this little necklace by stringing cardstock flowers and pasta on yarn. I have several handmade pasta necklaces that I treasure from the years when my girls were small!
This poem with handprints has been around forever, but it never gets old. Parents treasure it and it is so true---those little hands do grow up so fast!!!!
Sometimes you get discouragedBecause I am so smallAnd always leave my fingerprintsOn furniture and walls.
But every day I'm growing -I'll be grown some dayAnd all those tiny handprintsWill surely fade away.
So here's a little handprintJust so you can recallExactly how my fingers lookedWhen I was very small.
I must share this sweet Mother's Day bulletin board with you! The kids made a giant heart collage of mommies and children cut from magazines and pictures of each child with their mommy was posted around it!
