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.
Homemade Teacher Cards (or Homemade Mother’s Day 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.
She added the words “Thanks for helping me grow!” to the flower pot, perfect for a teacher appreciation card or a cute homemade Mother’s Day 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 from my years in the classroom.)
Although we plan to use these as homemade teacher cards, they would also make cute Mother’s Day cards, just include a different message on the fish one!
