One of my VERY favorite projects of the year is Breakfast in Bed for Mothers' Day!
Especially since it feels like I'm giving some love right back to the families after they've given me love during Teacher Appreciation Week.
Each year, moms have given me the happiest feedback, saying that it was their favorite part of Mothers' Day. Warms my heart!
And, moms DESERVE it!
I didn't put the directions/list materials below, but they're in detail in the freebie file. Enjoy!
The following page gets filled in by each student and then re-copied onto a blank card. I usually buy a box of 100 "Recollections" scrapbook blank cards from JoAnn or Michaels every few years because they have such variety.
This poem is hand-copied or cut out and glued onto a gift bag or onto a white lunch bag (from WalMart). Depends on the writer.
Some kids get worried that they're not going to be allowed to wake up their mom a weensy bit early so I send this little note along with the following page stapled onto the letter.
This note generally helps the kiddo feel better about it with their dad. :)
If there's no Dad at home, I white-out the Dad on the letter & "For Dad's Eyes Only" but keep the rest. I also ask the kiddo if there's an older sibling or other grown up that can help out.
What do you do for your Mothers' Day project?
