Mother's Day Ideas

May is such a busy month!  Our school does Open House, an art and author's faire, and not to mention all the spring projects, caterpillars, plants, and Mother's Day!  {It's also my husband's and my birthdays this month!  YEAH!}

So who needs a Mother's Day project idea??  I made these adorable sunflower handprints last year, and the moms I saw who opened it {I rolled it into a scroll, and tied it with yellow ribbon} had tears in their eyes.  As a mom myself, I would have cried too!  I glued a little poem onto the bottom of it as well, and have uploaded it onto google docs for you in case you'd like to use it, too.  {Click on the poem down below to download your copy.}  SO! here's the idea I got from my favorite website, evuh! Pinterest, of course!

Cute, right??  I modified it to fit my tastes and time frame, but you can totally have the kids glue sunflower seeds or black beads in the middle too.  I had them use their finger to dot on black paint into the middle of mine.  I also just had my students paint a stem and leaves with a paint brush and green paint instead of gluing on construction paper ones.

I think handprint mother's day projects are super cute, and moms love them.  And it's all about the momma's, right?  Check out my Kindergarten Mother and Father's Day board on Pinterest for some more adorable ideas.  You can use the poem I typed up for any of those activities as well.

ENJOY!!  Happy Mother's Day to all the mommas out there.
