There are so many fun ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in the classroom! Are you looking for fresh ideas? Check out these Mother’s Day activities below!
Mother’s Day Poem
Your students could make a poem for Mother’s Day! In my opinion, one of the easiest poems to do with little ones is an acrostic. They can write an adjective that describes their mom for each letter in the word ‘mother,’ or they could do the same for their mom’s name!
Mother’s Day Photo Frame Craft
These simple fingerprint frames would make a great gift for Mother’s Day! You can find craft photo frames in bulk on Amazon and then add fingerprints with paint or decorate in some other way. This will be a wonderful keepsake for moms!
Mother’s Day Coupon Book
Coupon books are a great way to get students thinking about what they can do for their mom. Print these pages on various colors and students will design coupons to give to their mom! They can even draw a picture of each activity they will do for or with their mom. This resource also includes a list of ideas that students can use for their coupon book.
Mother’s Day Interview
These interviews elicit the sweetest, and sometimes funniest, answers from children. They will complete sentence stems to tell about their mom. Glue these interviews onto colored paper and they will definitely be fridge-material! These interviews are also a great way to begin brainstorming what to write about in a poem or for another writing prompt, like the one below.
Mother’s Day Flowers
Get mom some flowers that will last longer than a week! These flower crafts always turn out so sweet. Students can write about how much they love their mom on the response pages or they can write adjectives that describe their mom on the flower petals. In first grade, I like to ask them to use similes to describe their moms!
I hope you can use these ideas for Mother’s Day activities in your classroom!
