Last Minute Mother’s Day Fun

Mother’s Day is here this Sunday 13 May, and that means it’s time to celebrate the mums in our lives. In childcare centres many of us have a morning or afternoon tea with mums attending centres to take part in some art and craft — this is always a fun way to celebrate, but what else can we do to make Mother’s Day extra special?

Last minute Mother’s Day ideas

Teach children a poem: While you won’t be at children’s homes with them on Mother’s Day, it doesn’t take long at all for children (especially the older children) to learn a little poem to recite for mum. Enjoy this special gift from Bonkers Beat the Monkey – our poem ‘My Mum’: Access here.
If you haven’t yet had a Mother’s Day event at your centre, a group performance of this is always lovely for mums!
Breakfast in bed: It doesn’t have to be complex to be a thoughtful and much-appreciated gesture for Mother’s Day. A grown-up will have to lend a hand but for the most part, children can manage these:
Fruit kebabs
Fancy breakfast toast
Granola parfait
Create something special from the garden: Nip to the garden and pick some flowers for mum. A hand-picked posy will be sure to put a smile on mum’s face!
Make a crown for the Queen of the family: If a quick craft is what you’re after, this printable crown is perfect for Mother’s Day. Simply print, colour in and decorate and join together!
A questionnaire about mum: Mums love to hear what their children have learned or gain insights into how they see the world. This questionnaire for kids is all about mum and is a guarantee to give mum a laugh or even make her tear up! Print here.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums, grandmothers, aunties, step-mums and other wonderful female role models in children’s lives!
