Before you begin
Interview your students and write down or record three reasons they love their mom.
Then, write or type out the reasons on the “stems”. I’ve found that this is simplest to do before cutting the stems apart. Just remember to put the child’s name or initials on the stem pattern somewhere so you don’t mix up the children’s reasons.
Cut out the pattern
This pattern may be a bit difficult for your younger students. However, most 4 year old and 5 year old students will likely be able to do a decent cutting job by the time mother’s day rolls around.
Assemble the flowers
Using the glue stick, paste one circle in the center of each flower petal shape. Allow to dry for a few seconds, then flip over and paste the stem on the back, making sure to cover at lease half of the flower petal.
Place the flowers inside of the bouquet wrapper.
Have student’s paster their flowers inside of the bouquet wrappers by slipping the stems into the open pockets.
Be sure to put the flower stems deep enough that it covers most or all of the words.
Hand it over and watch mom’s surprise.
All done! Now the only job left is to hand this adorable DIY Mother’s Day gift to mom.
This is one of those adorable preschool crafts that mom will most likely lock away to look back on later in life!
