We have an annual Mother's Day Brunch where we invite the moms to come for a little breakfast at the beginning of the school day. We have breakfast casserole and sweet treats, but the best part, next to the kids singing a Mother's Day song to them, is the handprint memory book we work on all year and present to them.
We put the pages in page protectors and then in 3-ring binders:
LOVE the question-answer page. It's so funny to hear the things kids say!!
We also scatter pictures of the kids with their friends and doing activities at school throughout the book...but I wanted to show you the handprints we did...one for each month.
SEPTEMBER: a box of crayons
OCTOBER: a spider, complete with web, and a memory of their costume.
NOVEMBER: a turkey, and their favorite Thanksgiving food.
DECEMBER: Rudolf, and their favorite Christmas gift.
JANUARY: a penguin
FEBRUARY: a heart-felt handprint
MARCH: an Easter chick
APRIL: a rainstorm
MAY: flowers...(of course! May flowers always follow the rain!!)
And an end of year reminder that your sweet kiddos are the gold at the end of your rainbow!

Happy Mother's Day!!
