Mother's Day Gift Idea 2016

Hi guys!

We are ahead of the game for once so I wanted to share with you what we are doing for Mother's Day gifts this year!  Scroll to the end of the post to grab the free printables!

THE CARD

First, I had the kids colour the bouquet for the poem that goes on the front of the card...


and also trace "Happy Mother's Day", the heart and print their name beside the heart.


Then they used their fingers and paint to make the stems and flowers.  For the painting, I showed them the steps whole group and sat with small groups (2-4 at a time) and guided them as they created their bouquets.

I cut the printables out and the kids choose a colour for the card and glued it on.  At the end I hot glued some ribbon in the middle of the bouquet to finish the card off!

THE GIFT

For the gift portion we made little magnets!

I got these 2 in x 2 in Matte White Mosaic Backsplash Tiles from Home Depot and cut them apart with an exacto knife.

Then I took the kids' pictures.  I had them choose a bouquet of tulips (yellow or pink) and hold them for the photo.  I put them in PowerPoint, added some text (the font is KG Life is Messy) and printed them out.

Last year I used mod podge to seal pictures on a similar project but the mod podge made the picture fade a bit so this year I laminated the pictures and hot glued them on instead.  It worked out really well!

Here are some of the finished magnets!


And here is a close up:


Finally I added magnets to the back using hot glue.  A little tip, you can buy the smallest magnets but make sure you put four, one on each corner.  One big magnet doesn't work nearly as well! #lessonlearned

In case you are wondering the magnets I used are the Craft Medley Magnetic Buttons (0.4 in/10mm) kind that you can buy at Dollar Tree.


To send everything home in we decided to wrap the magnets in tissue paper and put the magnets and cards in a paper bag.

To decorate the bag I had the kids write "Mom" and their name and draw a picture of their moms in the middle.  Here is my sample. 


That's it! I hope you are able to use some of these ideas for your classroom's Mother's Day gifts!

  8. El Sisben IV se utiliza para focalizar el gasto social hacia la población más pobre y vulnerable, tal como se hizo para definir a los beneficiarios de la Devolución del IVA y la Renta Solidaria. Los programas sociales lo utilizan para encontrar hogares que necesitan subsidios de salud, educación y vivienda, por ejemplo.

  9. Corporate gifting is an art as crafty as any that has excellent rewards if done right but also poses grave threats if not handled with care. If your gifts are well appreciated, you are sure to experience more productive employees, more co-operative bosses, happier clients and an overall boom in the business region. We can even go as far as to say, the money you spend on gifts might just be a valuable investment. find out
