Mother’s Day Craft for Teachers: Cheap and Easy!

Mother's Day Craft for Teachers: Cheap and Easy!
 

It’s almost Mother’s Day, and my students spent yesterday working on a special craft just for mom! I make these flower pens with my class every year, and they’re always a HUGE HIT with moms!

I love how they turn out, and the best part is that they are C-H-E-A-P to make! Everything you need to make these pens can be found at the Dollar Store. I only spent $6 on this craft for 20 students!

In this post, I’ll show you step-by-step how I make these pens with my students.

Mother’s Day Craft for Teachers

The Dollar Store always has a variety of flowers to choose from. I usually just grab a bunch with different colors, because I encourage my students to pick mom’s favorite color! I keep a lot of ribbon on hand at all times. When I’m at Michaels I always go to the ribbon section and grab a few I like that’s on sale 50-75% off.

Mother’s Day Craft tip…

Avoid purchasing Bic pens for this project! The ends don’t easily pop out.  You have to be able to pop the end out of the pen, and the Dollar Store pens that “resemble” Bic pens pop out the easiest!

Younger students may need a little help wrapping the pen. My 4th graders do a great job! They have to pull the tape tightly around the pen to get it to stick. Sometimes the tape breaks, but that’s okay just have them start again where it broke off.
