Mother's Day Gift

I have been trying to figure out which Mother's Day Gift 
I am going to make with my students. 
 I have so many past ideas that it is hard to choose. 
I think I am going to take flower pots and have the kids use their fingertips 
to make flowers on them, and then plant some flowers in them. 
One year I had the kids bring in an old shoe and we planted flowers in their shoe. The moms loved them.
Another idea I used in the past is recipe cards.
 We made cute little bundles of recipe cards for mom.
 The top recipe card is the "Recipe for a Happy Child", 
 which is a super cute verse that any MOM would love.
 It is placed on the top of  a stack of cutesy, blank recipe cards and tied with a ribbon.  
Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy as my class would say.
I have used this with preschoolers, kindergarten, and even second graders.  
To add to it, I have the students write or dictate their favorite recipe to me.
Have them write about MOM's cooking. (mine would be lack of cooking)
They are hilarious!
If you need a quick activity here is a preview of my recipe cards.  I have sets of both girl and boy clip art.
I have also included 2 different writing activities that can go along with the cards. 
I just posted this on my Teacher Pay Teacher Store for $2.00.
