Mother's Day Cookbook & All About My Mom Booklet Freebie!

EDITABLE Mother's Day Cookbook- Have students describe how their moms make their favorite foods and combine into a cookbook for Mother's Day! SO CUTE (and funny!) Makes a sweet keepsake. #mothersday #cookbook #kindergarten #1stgrade
For several years I made a Mother's Day Recipe Book as a Mother's Day gift. I have revised this to be an editable booklet.
Here is the OLD version :)
Mother's Day cookbook written by students & All About My Mom book freebie!

I had each student tell me their favorite food that their mom makes, then dictate how she makes it. Their submission was accompanied with a picture of the child wearing a chef's hat as well as a brief bio.

Here are some of the entries from past years:

As a separate activity, I had each student answer questions about their mom, and I filled in their answers.

Here is a sample:

This is actually the one my daughter made for me several years ago.
She was BANG ON with her answers (well, besides my height, lol)

Most students were not bang on.
In fact, I wonder if they've even met their mothers.
???

Apparently, most moms prefer to shop at: the grocery store.
Favorite thing to do: play with me, closely followed by nap.
Age of most moms: 16
TV show: Oprah

SO CUTE

Over the past couple of years, I nixed the cookbook and expanded on the questionnaire portion, turning it into a Mother's Day booklet.

These booklets are not nearly so labor-intensive, yet are totally adorable and provide a special glimpse of each Mom through their 5-year old's eyes!

  1. I LOVE the Mother's Day interview....they crack me up. I also do "My mom weighs...." It is amazing how many moms out there weigh 3 pounds! Haha

  3. This is adorable, Anita! I'm going to pass it along to the JK teachers at my school - they do a big Mother's Day Tea and a booklet not nearly as nice as this one :)

  4. Super cute! I might use a version of it. One of my favorite gifts was when a mom interviewed my class for me and asked them how old/tall I was, what is something I say, what I like/don't like. Then she put it all in a cute scrapbook.

  5. Anita, I am definitely doing this idea this year! It is totally cute! I don't know if you're interested, but I just did a post on multicultural Cinderella books with some freebies. If you have a second, I'd love it if you could stop by my blog.
