This is a creative idea for having your students designing cards to give their Dads for Father's Day. Have your students create "tool box" shaped cards that open to reveal a pocket area. Inside the pocket part of the card, students can include tools that describe why they think that their father is special.
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.
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."
This is a cute idea for a Mother's Day activity. I would have my students create a larger version of these cards and include a creative writing topic and a title for a Mother's Day bulletin board display such as: "My Mother is Blooming Great!"
Using paper bags to create a shirt and tie is a cute idea for a Father's Day project. These 3 dimensional projects would look eye-catching on a Father's Day bulletin board display along with a creative writing assignment with a topic such as "My Dad is TIE-rrific Because ..."
