Here are a few ideas for Mother's Day crafts, both standard and unique. I hope the students enjoy them:
Make a 2011 2012 calendar for Mother's Day:
Use an online calendar maker to get your calendar grids. Photo copy those or print them out and cut them up. Have the students decorate, add pictures, and or write a message for their mom.
A Mother's Day Card craft:
- a very standard idea. Students fold construction paper in half, line it with white paper on the inside for the personalized message. Students decorate the front of the card and add a message inside. it can be that simple or for older children you can make pop-up cards, photo cards, or other unique Mother's Day cards to give to their Mother's along with some of the ideas below.
Make a set of bookmarks:
If your mother is a big reader, give your mother a gift she can really use. Make bookmarks with all of Mom's favorite things drawn on them. Add photos of the student, pets, family. Add a little Mother's Day message to the back. Decorate with cut-outs and laminate if possible.
Make a crossword puzzle, Design a board game or activity you can do together.
An easy gift idea, and the students can work on all of the pieces, even creating the puzzle themselves and decorating the crossword. Make a crossword about your Mom, the family, and about things Mom likes ... If you have an IT center, you can go down there and have the students use any one of the online crossword makers but I think making it themselves is a much better activity and yields a more personalized gift.
