Today was filled with lots of Mother's Day activities
that well and truly kept us busy and on our toes!
On the agenda was Mothers' Day cards,questionnaires,
flower bouquets and love heart cookies!
First we made our Mother's Day flower bouquet using handprints and our photos.
Using a paper cup we painted it and then when dry
decorated it with ribbon, gems, buttons and sequins.
Paint both of your students hands and make prints.
Cut up one pipecleaner into thirds for each student.
We took each child's photo and glued it into a tulip template
which the students had cut out. We attached the tulip, and
both hand prints to a piece of pipecleaner. We then pressed
them into a small ball of blu-tack.
Inside the cup we loosley scrunched up one piece of newspaper
so it was level with the top of the cup.
To finish we placed the ball of blu-tack with the flowers into the cup and filled the top with green tissue paper behind and in front to make it stand up properly and stay in shape.
unfortunately we cannot show the child's photo inside the tulip but they were very cute!
We completed hand print cards and a mother's day questionnaire
We folded A4 card in half and on the fold we printed the student's handprint. When it was dry we cut around it and inbetween the thumb and pointer finger to make a heart shape when opened up.
When opened up we wrote to our mums on their other side.
Using this mother's day questionnaire template, I asked the students the questions and recorded their answers. (I reduced my template to A5)
We placed both items together onto black A4 card to give to their mums!
The best part of the day was creating hear shaped mother's day shortbread cookies
Using this simple short bread recipe we made cookies using heart shaped cutters.
We decorated them with pink icing and sprinkles.
We tested them before we gave them to our Mums and they were super delicious!!
Top Teacher wishes everyone a Happy Mother's Day!
