Mother's Day is fast approaching

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Mother's Day is May 11th. Don't forget your mom! Here's a cute idea for a Mother's Day card that kids can make for mom. Or, it could be adapted nicely for Grandma (or even daddy for that matter- his day is 6-15). I found this crafty idea on Hot Chalk. If you don't have a membership you can sign up for free. They have lots of great lesson plan ideas for various subjects and ages. Check it out.
Some of my other favorite gifts for mom can be found at Red Envelope.

Title - Mother's Day Cards
By - Angela Simmons
Primary Subject - Art
Secondary Subjects - Language Arts
Grade Level - K-4
Title: Seeds of Love

Construction Paper
Markers, Crayons, Stickers
Seed Packets
Optional - pictures of students
Scissors and Glue

1) Have each child fold a piece of construction paper in half and glue a picture of himself on the front. The children may then want to draw a flower or other pretty design on the front of the card as well.
2) Inside, on the left side of the card, have children glue preprinted copies of the poem at the bottom of this lesson.
3) Inside, on the right side of the card, have children tape a packet of flower seeds and write a message to Mom!

Be creative! Use glitter, foam, poster board, or make any changes you like.

Seeds of Love Poem:

These seeds are here for me and you,
And Mommy, here's what we can do:
Together we'll look until we've found
A spot to plant them in the ground.
With rain and sunshine, don't you know,
Our flowers, like our love, will grow.
A precious reminder our flowers will be
That I love Mommy and she loves me!
