Mother's Day is upon us and if you still haven't had a chance to help your students create something special for their moms, we've got you covered! From flowers to jewelry dishes, these 5 projects celebrate moms in every way. Let's dive in and take a gander, shall we?
Flower Power (via Easy Peasy Fun)
A few straws and some colorful paper- that's all you need in order to start to create these adorable paper flowers. Add a little glue and scissors to cut and assemble the pieces and you've got yourself a super easy project all your students can get involved with.
2. Fancy Handprint Moms (via Non-Toy Gifts)
The main tool your kiddos will need for this project is good 'ol lefty and righty! But can we talk for a second about just how cute these handprint "moms" are? We are obsessed, and not just because they're adorable, but because it's so easy for little hands to work with! So grab yourself some googly eyes, head over to this blog and challenge your students to create a portrait of their mama with their hands. Ps- This is also a great time to break out our Handprint die, if you've got it.
3. Dimensional Tulip Card (via Easy Peasy Fun)
When planning a craft that will put a smile on mom's face, you really can't go wrong with flowers. Even better is a flower that she can keep forever and we've found one we heart - this ADORABLE 3-D tulip. Check out the tutorial and bust out that Tulip die if you've got it handy.
4. Tulip Jewelry Dish (Via Mommy's Bundle)
More tulips? Oh yes, we like options. Grab a little clay and a little paint and get ready to make with your kiddos. Check out the full tutorial here for more.
5. Thumbprint Canvas Magnets (via First Grade Blue Skies)
Last but not least we have these thumbprint canvases. That's right- canvases. The new mason jar (we're calling it.) These may be from 2016, but this idea is seriously genius and not to mention soooo quick! Grab the full how-to here and get your Picassos-in-training ready!
