"I love you to pieces" is a super-fun "rip & tear" craftivity that will help strengthen those finger muscles.
I found this idea in various print forms on a variety of sites, so I'm not sure where the original idea came from. However, instead of making an 8x10 print to frame, I thought it would be perfect to design some cards, bookmarks and magnets, which children could make in school for various holidays: Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or Grandparent's Day.
This "craftivity" packet is very versatile. I have templates that you can use at the end of the school year, where students write about the"souper" summer they are looking forward to, or the "souper" year they had, or they can make one for your next year's kiddos explaining why they are going to have a "souper" year in __________ grade.
Card flips open to reveal why their child thinks they are a sweet mom. Add a photo inside the cherry and some paper "sprinkles" for that finishing touch. This Mother's Day "craftivity" is a special FREEBIE in my TpT shop. Click on the link to get your copy today!
Packet includes 3 templates to make this Mother's Day card. Share your sample, and explain to students that when they flip their card upside down, the word MOM, now spells WOW. This is a palindrome. Encourage children to share their card both ways with their mom. Older students can complete the writing prompt: My mom is a wow mom because . . . on the back.

There's a background template for Mother's Day and Father's Day, as well as a generic one so a child can give this to anyone. Students take their shoe off and trace it on a folded sheet of construction paper. By cutting once they will have two "butterfly wings."
There are 3 templates so you can use this for Mother's Day with a generic "You are 'berry' special" pattern, so students can give this to someone else, or make for Grandparents' Day.
Students write a sentence on each colored strip of why their mom/special person colors their world with love.
This is a versatile craftivity, as you can use the various templates for a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift, or something to make with grandparents for Grandparent's Day. If you'd like to give your students an end-of-the-year gift, this is also relatively easy and inexpensive, and sure to become a keepsake. This "craftivity" is a special FREEBIE in my TpT shop.
