Mother's Day Gift Ideas

May 04, 2014


With Mother's Day next weekend, here are some ideas that I always use.

Every year I have my students create these Mother's Day books.  They are quick and easy to assemble!  What I love most about them is that they are long-lasting.  When I was a kid, we would often make something for our moms out of construction paper, and time always took its toll on them.  These books are laminated, so they will last!

I especially like how they look once we wrap them.  I think they look so adorable!

Another of my favorite activities is this fill-in-the-blank keepsake.  Students write such funny answers.  Their parents always get a laugh out of them!


I included the instructions and templates on how to make these and another booklet in a Celebrating Parents packet, which covers both Mother's Day and Father's Day! The packet also includes templates for grandparents and aunts and uncles, as well as a blank one, so it should cover all the needs in your classroom.
