Light Up Mother’s Day Cards

  • “You light up my life!”
  • “You light up my heart!”
  • “You are the light of my life.”
  • “You make my day shine!”
  • “You make me shine!”
  • “You light my way.”
  • “You shine like a star.”
  • “You are my shining star.”

These are just a few of the sayings second graders used on their light up Mother’s Day cards!

We used paper circuits from Chibitronics to create the circuits behind a shape in the inside of their cards.

 

Then they poked holes in the shape to help light shine through and came up with catchy sayings for Mother’s Day.  I was so impressed with their creativity and they were so proud of their cards. Take a look at some of them below:
