Still need an idea for Mother's Day?

Hope you are all having a fantastic start to the week!  We're having FANTASTIC weather here so we can't complain.  Great weather really helps make a great start to the work week!  
We thought we'd share a few Mother's Day ideas that we are doing in our classrooms.

Here's a cute fingerprint bookmark that could be a gift itself or added to a gift.  
The idea is all over Pinterest, but the link no longer works to the site.  If you search Mother's Day bookmark on Pinterest you should be able to see a picture of how these turn out.  We promise to get a picture up tomorrow of a few that our kiddos created.  
We laminated them and they turned out ADORABLE!
We loved the idea so much and recreated the bookmark.
You can get a 2014 updated copy {HERE}
You might not be able to see the outline of the stem and leaves, until you print.  It is very light in color.

One of our parent favorites is our pen holders that we do every year. Every kid brings in  a jar from home. We then use small tissue paper pieces and attach them with glue. We then have the kids paint over the tissue paper with glue again, before we spray them with a clear gloss. We then attach these sweet little flower tags with ribbons. They aren't quite finished yet, but will try to share pics when they are. They are turning out so sweet!




The last activity we do when we can get kids to bring in their recipes is a class cookbook. We've also done this as a fathers day present at the end of the year, which is quite possibly what it's looking like will happen this year. Friday is coming awfully quick...

We uploaded a template using a simple font, and only Office graphics so that you can change it to fit your needs. You can find it {HERE}. 



Here is a template for the poem if you'd like to use it. Grab it {HERE}.


Hopefully you have all found some things you can use at our TpT Store as well! If you haven't grabbed all of your goodies yet, better get on it! The sale ends at midnight...

Have a great rest of the week!
