It’s that time of year, the time of year where Mother’s Day crafts and teacher appreciation gift ideas are sought out. This is the last week of the church school program my kids attended this year, and so we’ve been busy making teacher appreciation cards.
The first one we made was a bouquet of hand print flowers.
After using a paintbrush to thoroughly coat her hand in green paint, my daughter had fun making the flower stems for her card. She used her fingerprints to create each of the flowers, carefully sprinkling a bit of glitter on the wet paint. A simple construction paper flower pot finished the card.
To make our second card, a cute hand print fish, we just turned the hand print sideways, added a googly eye and used a permanent marker to add a few details.
Cards from students, especially homemade cards, are one of the mementos teachers tend to keep year after year. (I know I still have all of mine!)
Although we plan to use these as teacher cards, they would also make cute Mother’s Day cards, just include a different message on the fish one!
