Hello all! This week is all about Mother's Day! The directions for how to make the Mother's Day flower craft is included in the attached PDF document. Please forward the document to whoever will be doing the craft with your child (Dad, Grandparent, older sibling, etc.). As always, let me know if you have any questions or need any help! There are also some other fun ideas, stories and songs/ movement activities included below. CCP hugs and love, Jen

Crafts: 1. Make a large flower for mom or grandma with the paper I prepped for you. You should have 6 petals and 1 yellow center. Let the kids cut out the center and the petals. It will be OK! You could decorate the center or leave it alone. Kids could draw a face or glue on something special. On at least 3 of the petals, write things the child loves about the mother or grandmother. Glue the petals behind the yellow flower center. It should look a little like this.
2. Work in your scrapbook. Can you add pictures, stickers and words to your scrapbook to show what you did in April? Please notice that the end of the scrapbook has a page to complete the last week of school. 3. Draw a picture of your mom!
Make a flower snack with or for mom!
Write and draw in your journals! Topics could include mom and or any of the topics we studied in April. (Kindness, Camping, Seeds, Nature, Nocturnal Animals.)
Make up a story about the best day ever with your mom. Write it down (parents) or just recite it.
Make gift certificates for mom. Examples might be:
Free foot rub
1 hour of free time
Mom's movie choice
Chore free day
Breakfast in bed
