    What do you do for Mother's day? Do you make gifts? Does anyone have a special poem for mothers?
    Thanks.

    I buy coffee cups at garage sales or thrift shops and we plant seeds a few weeks before Mother's Day. The kids like it and it looks cute with a ribbon tied around the handle. We also make a card (shaped like a simple teapot) with a poem and teabag inside. The poem says:
    Here's a gift for Mother's Day.
    I try my best in every way.
    But when you get upset with me-
    Relax and have a cup of tea!

    Go to the Elementary group. There are some ideas there-the same question was asked.

    I am making a laminated book mark with the kid's pictures on them, and they are saying three things that make their moms great .

    I always enjoy making fingerprint animals such as mice, caterpillars, etc. with my students. They are easy, relatively non-messy, and inexpensive. There are books and online sites with simple directions.

    We did handprints in clay (fired and glazed in a kiln and then later decorated with a ribbon). We'll then wrap them and make cards. I might include the poem "Fingerprints". It talks about 'when I was small'....'you'd find my fingerprints on furniture and walls'. Cute and very fitting for Mother's Day.

    I always have my class write their mom a poem modeled after "The Important Book." It's easy enough to do and at the K level it could be dictated. I turn it into a laminated bookmark. As a mom, I love gifts, but appreciate the easier to save ones.

    We buy white tiles and each child makes their handprint. they write their name and the year. We then spray them to protect them. We will make cards and wrap the tiles

    We paint mini clay pots, then put in coffee filter flowers with the kid's picture in the middle of the flower. We are also writing coupons for mom. They write things like, "I will clean my room," "1 big hug," etc.

    I am having a Mother's Tea and students are singing What a Wonderful World, reading poems and I am reading Love you Forever. We made pens with flowers on top, cards, coupon book. I collected $3 from each mom, grandma, or aunt attending for food and drinks.

    I collected $2.00 from each child. $1.00 was used to purchase a clay pot, which was painted and sealed in class, and $1.00 was used to purchase a flower or herb. The flower/herb will be planted in the pot and given to the moms in a giftbag. We have been studying plants, and the kids are excited to plant one that has already started to grow!

    I stole someone's idea from the site. I bought clear glass beads and magnets. For less than $5 (really less--I had the magnets) we made magnets for our mother's fridge. They turned out great.
