Your students can make the cupcake for themselves or for one of your new students who will be coming in the fall. What a nice surprise to find in or on their desk on the first day of school. I also have a simple writing prompt option, where students color a cupcake on a bookmark that says: "Wishing you a sweet year!" They can leave a note underneath.
Have your current students make this owl writing prompt "craftivity" for your next year's students. Packet includes bookmarks, with templates for preschool through 3rd grade, plus a blank pattern.
This owl craftivity is an interesting and fun alternative to making a school memory booklet. Packet includes templates for preschool through 3rd grade, plus a blank one to fill in with whatever.
This packet includes a writing prompt craftivity for your current students to make for your next year's students. "You'll have a 'tree-mendous' year in ____________" (Fill in your grade.) as well as a 3D keepsake tree that they help create by tracing their hand (to make branches) and their arm (to make the trunk).
Your current students make a bee out of a toilet paper tube, yellow construction paper (body), black electrical tape (stripes), cupcake liners (wings) and a pipe cleaner (antennae). They complete the writing prompt: "I'm wishing you a 'bee-utiful' year in __________. (Fill in grade) Here's the buzz about what you'll learn and do" and then roll it up and insert it into their bumblebee.
Have students complete the writing prompt: "You're going to have a great year 'bee-cause'..." on the pages inside the mini apple booklet, and then glue it to the bumblebee that your current students make for your next year's kiddos.
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.
