Check out these adorable Owl Always Love You Mother’s Day Cards made with a kit from Mother Goose Time. Such a wonderful handprint keepsake for children to make for mom.
Mother Goose Time made Mother’s Day easy for me this year! The celebration kit this month included materials to make these super cute “Owl always love you” handprint cards for the moms. I like that the date is included. I always put the child’s name label on their projects because years from now, a mom may wonder which of her children made it.
Other activities included in the Mother’s Day celebration kit from Mother Goose Time:
This is another reason to love Mother Goose Time: beautiful, well planned monthly celebration kits that can be used with families (wonderful parent engagement) or as a theme with just the children. In the past, I’ve added activities and projects to the curriculum for special occasions. Now everything is included for a full holiday theme.
We didn’t even get to everything included in the kit because #1: I’m still behind after vacation! #2: an infant started in my child care soooo…things are a little different now. The booklet and materials are attractive and inspire me to include families, which is so important in Early Childhood education.
Make it a party or include a project or song along with the regular theme – lots of options to customize the materials to your needs!
Along with the owl handprint cards, we gave mom “My heart belongs to my mom” coffee mugs. Each child also painted a wood flower cut-out-shape. I found them at Michael’s and I always consider what I could do with them. This time, we simply painted them with liquid watercolors. I attached a string so that it can be hung from a window.
To wrap our presents, I put the cups into the boxes along with the wood flowers. I wrapped them with art paper and glued on MOM in letters that could be colored. I added some washi tape for decoration. Then the child colored their box as desired to add their personal touch. So cute!
Download the MOM wrapping paper PDF here. Prints on 8.5 x 11 paper. I just cut one “MOM” word out and glued it onto the wrapping paper. Or you could print several pages, color it all and wrap. That would be cute!
To keep the owl cards a surprise, I layered them between two pieces of white art paper and taped each side so they were protected for the trip home, and in a type of envelope. Easy and inexpensive, which we need in child care.
