Mother's day flower craft free printable writing activity all about why I love mom, or mom's favorite things to do. Perfect Mother's Day craft for the classroom

A Mother’s Day craft handwritten by your child is something special to keep and look back on with fond memories, especially those precious first years when your child is just learning how to write.

Just like handprint Mother’s Day crafts, handwritten notes are just the sweetest thing.

I have to admit, I LOVE the little kid phonetic spellings that you get when children are just learning how to write. They are so funny and adorable.

You can choose the pink petals, yellow petals or green petals, or have the kids use a mixture to make each child’s flower truly unique.

On each petal, the children should write one thing to connect with the topic that has been written in the middle of the flower.

For example, write one of Mom’s favorite things to do on each flower petal.

Or write one special reason to love mom on each petal of the flower.
