Are you looking for some handmade Mother’s Day gifts kids can make and Mom will fall in love with? You’ve come to the right place with these great heart-inspired craft ideas that can be used for anyone special in your students’ lives.


I Love You to Pieces Card

“Stained glass” I Love You to Pieces cards are an oldie but a goodie! This is a fantastic hands-on, fine motor craft activity that is creative and fun.

Print out the template, and decide if you are just going to use the white background or have the students cut out the heart and ‘I love you’ words to stick on a colored piece of card.

Then use tissue paper cut into squares for the ‘pieces’ of the heart. Depending on the age of your students, you may like to have these pre-cut and ready to go, or your students can practice measuring out squares with a ruler, then put their scissor skills to the test!
