I make card stationary every year. I show the kids an example of printed initials or a border design on each note card. (Just use plain index cards or cut your own from card stock.) I buy invitation envelopes from an office supply store. I tie the note cards and envelopes with ribbon and put them in ziploc bags. (cut off the zipper, folder over and tape) The moms love it!

I have my students make a card with yellow (paint) thumb prints, we add stripes, stingers, antennea with a marker to make bees....the card says "I will always BEE glad you are my MOM.


Someone also posted a booklet today that is neat.
BUT, lots of pages and we have limited copies at my school.

I got the idea from someone wonderful here on PT...last year we made ceramic coasters. The tile is really cheap (like 30 cents) at Lowe's and they can be decorated with sharpies and they look beautiful. Here's a link that explains more (has a pic too):

Pictures for MOM

I use foam frames. I purchase these and decorative stick-ons at Wal-mart for around $6.00. Then, I take a picture of each child ( .19$) at Wal-mart. The foam frames have a sticky peel on which the picture will stick. I have 18 in my class and it's not too costly.

We make keychains using a metal ring, string, colorful beads and beads with letters on them. The kids can spell out Mom or I love you. It's quick and easy.

quick tiles

I've done the tiles with first grade for several years. The matt tiles will absorb the sharpies, and therefore are much better than the gloss tiles. However, this year the only matt tiles I can find are about .70 and the gloss ones are .15! The gloss tiles will smear very easily. I used the acrylic spray on the tiles afterwards. Allow at least 24 hours to dry. Have students write name, date, message on bottom. Putting some felt on corners on the bottom is good idea, too. Then wrapped the tiles in the comics from the Sunday paper and wrapped it with a thick yarn bow.

I've also taken a close up picture of each student, trimmed it and had students use Modge Podge to adhere and gloss over. Again, the matt tiles work best, but this year I can't find reasonable ones. I used the acrylic spray on the tiles afterwards. Allow at least 24 hours to dry. Have students write name, date, message on bottom. Putting some felt on corners on the bottom is good idea, too. Then wrapped the tiles in the comics from the Sunday paper and wrapped it with a thick yarn bow.

Good luck!
