"Mother/Father of the Year Magazine Cover" Students will enjoy designing magazine covers featuring their parents for Mother's Day or Father's Day. Inside their magazine, they can write an article describing why their parents deserve this special recognition. These magazine covers would make a fun idea for a Mother's or Father's Day bulletin board display.
