Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a special and different type of day in my classroom.  We keep the generally same routine, but we make Mom the star of the show, and focus on things that will be a blessing to her!

Bible Truth: Thank God for my mommy.
Bible Story:  God's Word says to obey and bring joy to my mother.
Bible Study: Proverbs 23:25; Ephesians 6:1-3

pray


When it comes to prayer time, we forego the normal prayer requests.  We talk about all the things our mothers do for us, and how blessed we are because God gave us a mommy to take care of us.  We thank God for her, and pray especially for her.  Praying for our mommies is one of the best ways that we can show our love for her!

Today's goal is to be a blessing to our mothers, so instead of a lesson, we put our love into action, allowing for a longer craft time to make something extra special for her!  Since most children are in my class for two years, I try to never repeat the same Mother's Day craft two years in a row.  Thankfully, Pinterest helps to keep the creative juices flowing!  I've rounded up a few different craft ideas from other sites to share with you.

Mother's Day Pieces Card - This is a very simple card that requires minimal materials and prep, but I think it is absolutely adorable!

Because Bouquet - Younger children, you will need to write the reason that they love their mom for them, but the reasons that little ones give are always charming, and they make a great keepsake for Mom!



Satin Hands Sugar Scrub - This was the Mother's Day gift that I made with my class last year.  I used small plastic containers, which also come in a pack of ten at Dollar Tree.  Children mixed their ingredients in a cup.  I poured the mixture into the container, and they chose a pretty flower decal to attach to the lid.  We labelled them with these labels (which will fit on an Avery 5160 address label if you would like to print them onto an adhesive label).  It was a sweet, and useful gift that the kids really enjoyed making, since it was different than the crafts that we usually do.
