Default 1st Grade Mothers Day Project??

My son's first grade teacher asked if I had any ideas for what the kids could create in class to give their mothers at their Mothers Day celebration next Friday.

I have a few ideas, but am looking for easy enough to create but also fairly cost effective to purchase the items since I will be buying everything for all 20 kids to produce the items....(and probably redo in my daughters kindergarten 20 child class as well)

Thanks for any ideas/suggestions.

I will be helping my daycare kids make something special for their mom and although they are a bit younger this is a really cute idea. You could use this idea to make a wall hanging or create a card. First you trace the child's hand with fingers together. This makes a tulip shape. Next we are tracing their feet in green. Then basically you put it together.....handprint at the top....tulip flower then feet become the leaves after the kids draw a stem. Two together looks great.
My parents love having a special reminder about how big their child's hands and feet were at a certain age. The kids love any craft that uses a tracing of their hands and feet. Always a hit for parents and kids alike.
Don't know if that helps or not??

When our youngest daughter was in the 2nd grade they were all asked to bring in a clean jar of some sort, like a pickle jar. They then decorated the jar with bits of paper, fabric, glitter, etc. This was a Memory Jar and they put in some of their memories. We still have it and add memories to it every now and then. It's one of the best gifts that I have ever recieved.

What about a book mark with the kids school picture ( use the tiny photo). You could have the kids write a message to their Moms. Then laminate them. My daughter's 17 and I still have the one she made me in first grade.

Here are 2 poems you could use with this idea....
Nothing great...I just made them up to go with the inside of the card...

Tulips are popping up down the street,
These tulips were made with my hands and my feet.
I made these tulips just to say,
That I love you and
Happy Mother's Day.

here is another...

Tulips, tulips at my feet.
Tulips, tulips down the street.
I used my hands and used my feet,
I think my tulips are really neat!

Don't know if that helps at all??

My preschool class are making candle holders. I bought small clay flower pot at a craft store for around .50 and the children are glueing small buttons on the outside of the pots.
We are then adding a votive candle in the pot. These turn out so cute. For the wrapping, the children glued colorful polk-a-dots that I punched out of my scrap cardstock on to small white lunch bags. We top it off with a tag. This is an inexpensive project that is completely open-ended (there is no right or wrong way to do it). Moms love them and children love making them.

I did these with my Son's 1st grade class. The kids did a GREAT job. I stamped one of the inside tags and they wrote love messages to their Mom's on the other 3. They decorated the candles to go inside the boxes as well!
