1-2-3 Come Do Some More Mother's Day Activities With Me

During the week of Mother's Day, for our writing block, we do a variety of keepsake activities.  I give children a choice, with the option if they finish one, they may work on another.  This keeps kiddos focused and on task.  Win-win!

I think they are highly motivated because they love their moms and want to make some super-fun "paper love" for them to show their appreciation.

mothers day cards, mothers day activities, frog crafts, mothers day writing prompts, ladybug crafts, back to school activities, end of the year activities, bee crafts, The  "Hoppy' Mother's Day" frog  is quick, easy and fun, and turns out super-cute. Younger children can simply make the card, while older students can glue their frog card to the writing prompt lily pad.

The flip up “tongue” pattern featuring a cute little fly, has 2 verse options:

                                            “Just little old me flying by with a Happy Mother’s Day Hi.” and
                                        “Just little me flying by with a loving special “Hi.”


Likewise, there are a variety of options for the greeting on the frog’s belly, that’s revealed when the “tongue” is flipped up:

mothers day cards, mothers day activities, frog crafts, mothers day writing prompts, ladybug crafts, back to school activities, end of the year activities, bee crafts, “I’m jumping for joy and so “hoppy” you’re my (mom, mama, mommy, mum, grandma)!” plus a fill-in-the-blank template as well.

I've included a bow pattern for that finishing touch.

Next up, is a ladybug-themed Mother’s Day card, that's sure to become a keepsake.

The first ladybug’s wings open to reveal the greeting: “Love and a hug from your little bug.”

Wiggle eyes attached with glue dots, black pipe cleaner antennae and a photograph add those special finishing touches.

The circle poem on the back says: “The spots on my ladybug are made with TLC. They were made with my thumbprint with love to you from me.”

The leaf flips up to reveal the same “Love and a hug from your little bug” greeting. 

Children draw a picture of their mom on the back of the leaf. I’ve also included blank wings and leaves, so students can write their own words.

One teacher told me she was so excited to make this craft, as each year she holds a tea called "Muffins in May with Mom" where moms or a significant other come to school. What a cute idea.

Here she is enjoying the flowers I sent.  Wishing you a stress-free and joy-filled day.
