Mother's Day and Father's Day Gift Ideas

It's true...Mother's Day will be here before you know it! So I thought I'd share my favorite Mother's Day gift and give you some time to prepare! In the past, my students have made these adorable purses and wrote all about their mom by filling in the blanks.


 Then I gave them scrap paper, stickers and ribbon and they decorated the purse anyway they wanted to. The girls kiddos loved it! Their moms love the gifts too! Nothing says true love like a handmade gift!

Well I haven't had anything half as cute to give to dads on Father's Day, so I decided to create a similar craft using a briefcase.

 I know several of you won't be teaching around Father's Day {you don't even want to know how I feel about that!} but those of you who are still in school, or would like your own kiddos to make this gift, you can get it for $3 in my TpT store or TN shop!

  16. So cute. I love the purse Hadar, and your comments the other day totally made my day! Thanks! I'm totally adding you to my blogroll.

    PS - the other day I found this great idea for topic sentences & paragraphs and I forgot to pin it! I think it was a raincloud with raindrops, or a rainbow or something, and I cannot find whose blog it was. Does anyone know??? E-mail me if you do!
