Mother’s Day Seed Packet Template – Print, Fold, Glue and Fill

I am already thinking ahead to Mother’s Day gifts.  The Head Start I am volunteering at a few times a month was looking for a gift that mother’s would think was cute and wouldn’t take up a ton of class time to put together or tap into resources from the budget.

Seed Packet Good One

I created this template and brought it in to show the director.  Meet our children’s Mother’s Day gift. Print, glue, fill and done!

Like it?  Feel free to print it out and use it yourself. Download the —> Seed Packet Template. You have to fold the tabs and glue them to assemble the envelope.  Then, just fill them with seeds.  Instant gift!
