This DIY sugar scrub is made by each student for mom on Mother's Day. Even better, it can actually be tied to measurement standards to review learning at the end of the year!
Items to Gather:
- Construction Paper
- Hole Punch
- Hot Glue (for teacher)
- Small Gladware containers with lids
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Large bowl
- Ingredients for homemade sugar scrub or store bought
Step 1: To make the flower, allow the student to pick a color of construction paper.
Step 2: Student will measure and draw circles with diameters of 4 inches, 3 inches, 2 inches, and 1 inch (4 circles total).
Step 3: Student will tear out the circles (cutting will look too neat!).
Step 4: Use a marker to go around the edges of each circle. This will add the color to the edges.
Step 5: Wad up each circle to give the flower a crinkled look.
Step 6: Glue the circles on top of one another (1 in. on 2 in., 2 on 3, 3 on 4). Do not glue down to the edges.
Step 7: Teacher will hot glue the flower to a lid and a jewel (of student's choice) to center of flower.
Step 8: To add a tag, students will tear out a tag and handwrite the phrase, "Made with love by my hands for your hands! Happy Mother's Day!" Hole punch the handle on the lid and the tag. Students need to edge the tag with marker and crinkle it as well. Then, use string to tie the tag to the container.
Last, add your homemade scrub. There are many recipes out there! You'll want to find one that fits your budget! Some can be pricey to make!
