Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity for children to show love and appreciation for their moms. No gift is as precious as spending quality time with your mom this Mother’s Day. Rejoice her presence in your life with sweet memories that she can keep forever.
Here are 5 ways to spend quality time with your mom on this special day:
- Baby Animal and Mom Match Up
Matching games on baby animals are an effective way to work on visual recognition. It is indeed a great companion activity that children can enjoy with their mothers and spend some quality time together.
- I Love You Because…
Have the child come up with different reasons why he/she loves his/her mom. You can write them on a large piece of paper from an art roll or turn them into a card or a piece of artwork. Make her feel special and loved this Mother’s Day.
- Stamped Flower Art
Look for natural materials to create a flower stamp, such as bundling several pieces of celery into a flower shape with a rubber band or carving a flower in a potato half. Then let the little one use the stamp to create their own artwork for mom.
Children gain a tremendous amount of information about the plant growth process and get ample sensory input by planting a seed and watching it grow. Choose a flower or herb that will thrive well in a small pot and allow the child to decorate the pot the way he/she likes.
- Recycled Paper Card
There are several different simple methods for making your own recycled paper out of old paper (i.e. newspapers, junk mail). This process teaches children the importance of recycling and enables them to create a one-of-a-kind card for their moms out of paper that they made themselves.
These activities will not only foster your child’s learning but will also further strengthen their relationship.
