This is my all-time favorite Mother's Day craft, which also works for Father's Day, and reinforces the 5 senses too.

Completed projects turn out absolutely adorable, and make a super-cute bulletin board, which will provoke lots of smiles and even giggles, as children say the cutest things!

Teacher Comments:

  • “Excellent resource!”
  • “So many options we love it!”
  • “Awesome.”

This “play-on-words” (Sense-sational) writing prompt craftivity is a nice end of the year review of the 5 senses, which definitely involves the “Awwwww” factor.

The craft is very versatile & something that’s quick, easy & fun for Mother’s Day, or use the blank “fill in” templates for Father’s Day.

These “fill in” patterns are also perfect if you happen to have a child without a mom, or perhaps a student would like their paper to say “Mum”, “Mommy” or “MaMa”.

Be sure and check out my two samples in the PREVIEW to happy-up your day.

I made them using real answers from children. (I hope they bring a smile to your face.)

I’m sure the ideas your own students come up with, will be as sweetly hilarious as well, making them a wonderfully special keepsake.

There are 12 girl & 12 boy head patterns, which offer a nice diverse selection for your students, plus a blank template if a child wants to draw their own head.

Students pick one, then add facial features, color it, and finally label their five senses.

Have students pick a partner, and take turns drawing one hand on a folded sheet of construction paper. This way they only have to cut once to get two hands, which they glue to the cover of their card.

There are 4 girl & 4 boy writing prompt options, plus a generic bear pattern to choose from.

Students complete the sentences, color & sign their card, stapling the cover to the top.

Younger kiddos can simply dictate their answers to the teacher, room helper, or older reading buddy.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled time making “paper love”, that’s sure to become a cherished keepsake.
