Get Ready for Mother's Day
"Mother's Day Project Your Students Can Make"
Mother's Day is next month. This activity allows you to get started early. Let children dip their foot in yellow paint, then apply it to a piece of paper.
(If you put paper towels in a pie pan and add a small amount of paint it won't be as messy. You can also just have them trace around their foot on yellow paper and cut it out.)
Use the heel of the foot as the chick's head by adding a beak and eyes. Let the children draw legs from the bottom of the chicken where their toes are.
Add this poem and a frame made from construction paper to make a precious gift:
Here is my foot.
It looks like a chick.
Keep it forever.
I'm growing real quick!
