Mother’s Day Directed Drawing FREEBIE

With Mother’s Day coming up, I thought that your students may enjoy drawing a portrait of their mom, grandma, aunt, etc. This is something that I did for years and just always loved how they turned out.

I put a little spin on it so that students are also describing their mom. Personally, I love sweet gifts like this!

Israel drew his Gigi and made her a birthday card:

Joelle also drew her Gigi and filled up the background with adjectives. I love how these turned out!

To guide your students in the drawing, I put together a video of myself drawing the portrait. But, I’ve also included the picture directions below if you’d like to teach your kiddos!
