The first graders are making Mother’s Day cards today with origami hearts that they already know how to fold, since we made hearts for Valentine’s day. For today’s card, though, I cut the sheets of origami paper in four small squares, which makes very cute tiny hearts. Other than the origami paper you will need a colorful sheet of regular paper (to fold the card) and a glue stick.
The children are going to write their message to mom in their own words.
Last week, as the first part of the Mother’s Day project, we made candle holders out of salt-and-flour clay (1cup flour/half a cup salt/half a cup warm water/food coloring). I will try and take pictures of the children’s creations before they wrap them in tissue paper.
