I had the opportunity to team up with Oriental Trading for some Mother’s Day fun that my students’ grandmas, aunties, and mamas will remember forever! I was even able to integrate science and literacy into our artful fun.
When these packages arrived, my kids were so excited! They helped me unwrap and set up for our activities, which is just as thrilling to a kindergartner as the actual activity. 🙂
We ordered bags to germinate our seeds, pots for those seeds, a plant viewer, and Mother’s Day frames.
After germinating our seeds, we were able to wipe away the names and save the bags for next year!
Then the kids planted their germinated seeds into their pots and decorated the pots for their moms.
Almost ready to send home to Mom!
And to continue our science fun, we are watching more seeds grow and will continue observing the parts of a plant.
Then we took the cutest pictures and placed them into these Mother’s Day frames that were 100% decorated by the kiddos. Everything that we needed was included, even magnets, in case we wanted these to be magnetic frames.
And each year I have the kids write in answers to their mom/grandma/auntie as if they were texting. It is so hilarious and the moms LOVE to read the answers. Grab this activity here or by clicking the pictures below.
And we made sure to have a spill-proof option when sending home on the bus. SUCCESS!
