“Let’s reach out to all the mothers in our lives to remind them how loved and appreciated they are!”
It’s not hard for kids to make something their mother will love. Mother’s Day Crafts helps kids voice how much they love their Mom with a handmade gift she will cherish. It can be made at school or at home. Here are some easy Mother’s Day Craft, activities and games for kids to show how much they love their mom and learn more about Mother’s day.
1) Game: Mother Says
Take turns with your students playing Mother Says (instead of Simon Says). Start by giving directions for your child to follow, such as “Mother says wave your hands. Mother says touch your nose. Mother says hop on one foot.” Explain that whenever you give a direction without first saying “Mother says” your child should not do the action. Continue the game as long as you wish.
