Mother's Day Card & Craft

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  Today I want to share a Mother’s Day card and craft idea that I had my students make for their mothers.

To make the card, I painted my student’s hand in their choice of colors.  When that dried, I painted one finger red to make the cherry.  Then, I cut a piece of a cupcake wrapper and let them glue it on so that their handprint would look like a cupcake.  Students who could write independently wrote the words and others traced my writing.  Inside, they signed their name.
Here’s a picture of the inside.  I also attached their finished necklace craft to the inside of the card.  Here’s the steps to create the necklace:
Step 1: Using nail polish, have students paint the metal jewelry piece.  You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.  You can find the necklace here.
Step 2:  After the nail polish dries, have students apply small dots of another color (or more than one color)  Do NOT let the nail polish dry this time.  Instead, apply jewelry glue over top.  You can get it here.  Then lay the glass jewel on top.  These steps combined create a unique design for each necklace.  You can get the jewels here.  Let them dry for 1-2 days.
Once they are dry, you are ready for your students to give them to their moms.  
Happy Mother’s Day!
