It’s almost time to celebrate Mother’s Day, and we all know how much recognition Mums deserve! Children love preparing for this event, whether it is celebrating their Mother, Mothers, Grandmothers or super cool Aunts! Here you will find an array of Mother’s Day activities for your classroom (or home) that are super cute, fun and need very little preparation!
Who doesn’t love a good pampering session! This has to be one of out favourite ways to celebrate Mum’s in the classroom (if you are lucky enough to have limited COVID restrictions like us). A lovely hand massage is a must! Our Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub is easy to make and the perfect accompaniment as a take-home gift after the spa-quality manicure treatment.
Handmade Card and Keepsakes
Cards are a quick easy gift and a lovely gesture, but handmade cards are an extension of the heart. Especially those that feature the very cute finger and hand prints of our young students. Both this card and bookmark are easy to make and will be treasured forever.
Not into painting hands and fingers? It’s not for everyone! These cards are the next best thing. Create a card that also doubles as gift coupons for Mum. I just love the suggestions that the little ones come up with as to what they think Mum wants from them for Mother’s Day.
Here are two other great options too! Both very cute and easy. And hey – extra fine motor or adjective practice too!
Who Doesn’t Love Flowers?
This is such an easy and effective craft to make for Mum this Mother’s Day. You could have students draw their own flower buds to cut out, cut from a gardening magazine or simply crunch up tissue paper.
From The Mouths Of Babes
I have so many fond memories in the classroom of interviewing students about their Mums. SO many giggles have been had as they share their super sweet thoughts with us about their Mums. Give it a go, you won’t regret it!
