For this "Flower of Love" project, students use different colors of construction paper cut in the shape of their hand prints to create the petals of their flowers. Inside each petal, students write a reason why they love their mothers. Add a photograph of each student in the center of the flowers and green stems and leaves. These projects would make a very colorful Mother's Day bulletin board display with a title such as "Our Mother's Day Flowers of Love."
Students use their hand prints and footprints to create these "Mother's Day Flowers." The poem that is written in the petals says: "This little flower is special, you see, because it is made from parts of me. My hands and feet made each flower part, to show I love you with all my heart." These student flowers would make a lovely Mother's Day bulletin board display and I would write the poem in large print as the title for this bulletin board display.
