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, I tweaked it, and instead of
making an 8×10 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: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Grandparent’s Day, or for you to give as an easy end-of-the-year gift for your kiddos.
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
They could also tuck one
into their card. To make this even more of a keepsake, have students
glue their school photo inside the heart.
