A Pocket Full Of Paper Love...
A Pocket Full Of Paper Love is an inexpensive and fun way to make an assortment of wonderful keepsakes for Mother’s Day.
Your students will enjoy stuffing the different items that they make during their independent center time throughout the week, into this container.
By the time they take them home on Friday, they’ll have a pocket that’s over flowing with love.
One of the items not pictured, is a wooden broach made from the same old-fashioned woodcuts. I bought wooden circles for only 10 cents each at Hobby Lobby.
My students cut and glued the “love knot” to the top and then drizzled on 10,000 Coats. After the discs dried (48 hours) they glued a pin to the back, to make an old-fashioned pin.
I taught my Y5's how to sing "I'm a Little Teapot" so they could serenade their mommy with a song, they made the teapot note and attached a teabag to the back.
Their bouncing renditions were heartwarming and adorable!
The final item we tucked into the pocket was their handprint. It added color and provided a backing to the plate so that the items didn’t spill out.
We wrapped the entire thing in hot pink tissue paper.
These ideas are part of the May Art Mini Book: Frogs, Flowers & Mother’s Day Packet.
