Just in time for Mother’s Day

by becky on May 4, 2013

So, this morning I was browsing Pinterest for EASY and inexpensive Mother’s Day ideas that I can have my students make this week. I found this cute idea from Kathy of First Grade ala Carte.

I had thought about my kiddos making coupons for their moms, but this added a little more sweetness to the gift. Each flower has a chore or a promise to do something for their mom.  I hope Kathy doesn’t mind, but I tweaked this idea and created my own version of this project. I plan to brainstorm “coupon” ideas with my class next week, but I figured it would be a good idea if I had some ideas already written to help guide their thinking.

Then, I made templates for my own flowers and flower pot. Here is my example I made this morning. (The things I do instead of yard work…) I don’t have all the fun colors of paper at home that I do at school, but I still think it looks cute. 🙂 (Those are supposed to be tulips, btw)

I thought it might be cute to give the kids an option to write a message directly on the flower pot or they could write on the “card” I created. Want to see all I made?

Does this look like a break down of a product I might post in my TpT store? Well, it’s your lucky day!!! Click the picture below and download your own copy of this project for your own students. Oh yeah, for FREE! 🙂 I hope it brings a smile to yours and your student’s mom’s faces. Not sure if I used the apostrophes correctly… lol.

I’d love to hear what you think!!! I hope someone finds it useful. Have a great rest of your weekend. Get ready for Teacher’s Appreciation Week! 🙂
