We started out by posing for our mothers holding flowers that they will be able to enjoy forever. The boys loved putting on one of Mr. Myers old suits! I loved the community shown by the kids as they dressed and posed. They were helpful, encouraging, and full of compliments for each other. They were very serious about posing because they wanted these perfect for their mothers!
Each picture captures their personality perfectly!
Then we created beautiful silvery frames.
The kids glued this poem on the back. I have no idea who created this poem, but it goes perfectly with their pictures.
They created gift bags...
I hope all of you mothers enjoyed receiving this gift as much as I did! I still have mine, eleven years later. The pasta is disintegrating but it will stay displayed in my kitchen forever. I once asked my son if he would like to remake the frame since the original was falling apart. He was horrified! "But mom! I made that frame in Kindergarten!" Lesson learned. I will keep it, even after all the pasta falls off!
They asked me if they could take "Family Photos" of each group as I took them outside. These "Family Photos" are some of my favorite pictures ever! They truly capture their personalities, their love for each other and the community they have built during this year together!
