    mother's day gift

    I just love using the digital camera to take a picture of each child holding a spring boquet of flowers. Then we glue to mat board, write "Cute As A Button" on top, and glue buttons all over the edges.
    We also make a book called I Love You and write several pages of analogies. I love you like I love ice cream. I love you like daddy loves golf, I love you like bears love honey, etc..

    My mom still has the gift we "made" in first grade. My teacher made a silhouette of us (I've done this with an overhead.) Then we made our hand-prints on paper (painted our hands with fingerpaint). We wrote the poem: (This is as close as I can remember it)
    Sometimes you get upset,
    Because I am so small,
    And always leave my fingerprints
    On furniture and the wall.

    Here's a handprint,
    Made just for you,
    As a way to remember,
    how much I love you.

    It's a little tattered around the edges, but still holding together.

    Christy

    Thanks so much!

    I love these new ideas you all gave. I will tell you what I do every year.On the first day of school, I have the children copy from the board"Today is the first day of school." I save them until Mothers Day. They then write Happy Mothers day and Look how much I have grown. I put them both together and laminate them.
    We usually have a Mothers day Tea.The children read poetry,sing etc.I didn't do it this year. Hopefully next year.

    The latest Pack-o-Fun issue had a cute idea of using strands of "pearls" (bought by the yard at craft stores) and strips of fun foam to make flowers. They used the pearls as a necklace base; they cut foam into probably 1 inch wide strips. Roll the foam like a snail shell and glue; the spiral will look like a little flower. Cut small green leaves out of foam and glue onto each flower. Glue each flower onto the pearl necklace. It was cute.

    capuccino cups

    I am having my students grow alfalfa seeds into a cappucino cup and have a note that says I love you with every hair on my head!

    mother's day ideas

    I am trying something new this year for Mother's Day. I had the kids bring in a shoe that they couldn't wear anymore. I painted it gold and sealed it with a clear sealer. I had the kids plant marigolds in paper cups. We made a plant holder out of their old shoe.

    I took a digital picture of each child, then using elmer's glue i adhered the photo onto a small glass jar. the students used tempera paint with glue added to paint designs on the jar.

    I think I'm going to get the thin foam and I will trace their hand..let them cut it out. Put their sticker picture on it and a magnet on the back and use the "hand" poem that Christy had!!!
