With Mother's Day approaching, I figured I would share what I did last year and plan on doing again this year. I had my students make coasters for their mom (or grandma) using bathroom tile. Only 17 cents each at Home Depot! The kids decorated using permanent marker then I sprayed it with acrylic spray to seal it. On the back I hot glued felt so that it doesn't scratch the surface. I had many moms go out of their way to tell me it was a wonderful project!
I am also going to try something new this year. It's called breakfast in a bag. I'm going to pick up white lunch bags for the kids to decorate and glue this poem to the outside of the bag. Inside the bag will be a package of oatmeal, a tea bag, granola bar, and a banana. Also included in the bag will be a Mother's Day card and the above coaster. Another cute idea would be to put the breakfast items in a mug, but that would be a pricey project.
