Mother's Day Card

I love finding something that's super versatile that I can use in different ways, for different reasons.

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. 

Students trim and glue the print to a sheet of construction paper to make a card.  Turn it into a writing prompt and have children write why they love that person. The bookmark works the same way.  I wrote up a sample that you can share with your students, to give them an idea of what you're looking for.

The magnets come in several sizes, including mini ones (20 on a page) that you can print, laminate and trim as a little gift for your students on Valentine's Day or the end of the year.

They could also tuck one into their Mother's Day card. To make this even more of a keepsake, have students glue their school photo inside the heart.
