    Mother's Day

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Photos of students inserted into frames made from front of tissue boxes, decorated with lace, ribbon, etc.; cardboard backer glued on.
    Can also be used for handprints or poems written by children "I love you more than ... " (a cat loves cream, a fish loves water....)

    Have students plant flower seeds to plant later in pots they have decorated - acrylic paint on small terracotta pots, varnish when finished.

    Make a bunch of crepe paper flowers.

    Cards - IOU type, eg IOU 10 big hugs; 5 dishwasher emptyings; 30 minutes babysitting, etc.

    Hope these few ideas are helpful. I have done all of these with five year olds, so 7-8 years olds should do even better! Ask the children as well - they often have great ideas that we wouldn't think of.
