Easy Mother’s Day Flower Craft

There are so many options for crafty ways to make a Mother’s Day card. This Mother’s Day craft idea is unique because of the flower on the card. Little ones are encouraged to use their own words to show mom how much she means to them. The flower’s petals are all meant to be notes to mom or about mom. For a Mother’s Day card, this is definitely one of the most encouraging ideas to give mom all the fuzzy and loving feelings. You can find the instructions here for the Easy Mother’s Day Flower Craft with a free printable template for the flower. 

Mother’s Day Cookbook

One of my favorite activities doesn’t include flowers or cards. This Mother’s Day Cookbook is a FREE resource for kids to show mom how much they appreciate her for Mother’s Day. The resource begins with students communicating exactly how Mom prepares one of their favorite recipes (of course, young students don’t cook, but their answers are amusing). After creating the recipe with ingredients and instructions according to the student’s memory, there is a page all about the chef (student). It is a great keepsake for moms to see what their child’s favorite food was, how they thought it should be made, and all about their student at this age.
