“Your hands surround me like a wall,
And wait to catch me if I fall.
Your hands feed me when I hunger
A mother’s hands are like no other.”
Happy Sunday everyone.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and with that begins our search for fresh craft ideas for the classroom (for us teachers, that is). I’d like to share a poem that I wrote, along with a craft idea. Feel free to download a copy of the poem and the card templates to use in your classrooms. I included various cover and greeting options. Feel free to mix and match. The flower craft requires a bit of judgement depending on your students’ age group, so you may want to use it as an extra or as a standalone craft.
Here are 2 cover options and 2 inner card options:
Here are some photos of the completed Mother’s Day Craft:
Here is a poem I wrote for Mother’s Day:
Here is another card option. Simply print, fold in half, fold in half again and voila:
Happy Crafting! Have a wonderful week everyone!
I would love it if you shared your finished products with us.

This is a beautiful Mother’s Day craft, Lora. I love the colors and the hand holding the flower. It reminds me of when I was little when I first learned how to make paper flowers from Kleenex tissues. They were so pretty and soft 🙂
Thanks! I’m glad it brought back warm memories. Isn’t it curious how simple sights and sounds can trigger fond recollections?
Yes—small, precious gifts 🙂
I really liked the mothers day cards and poems. What a fantastic idea. I wish that I had checked my emails earlier and shared these ideas with the class that I’m volunteering in. The teacher would of loved them both.
