I have always loved celebrating Mother’s Day in my classroom, and students do too! Mothers (or other primary caregivers) are without a doubt a huge and important part of a student’s life. They have unlimited amounts of love and guidance for their children, so students love to celebrate them!
One of my favorite ways to do this is to have Mother’s Day Tea.
This is a special day where we show moms how much we care by having cookies and tea with them.
Before the party you can have the students decorate the cookies especially for their moms using premade sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles. You can go around and take pictures of students with their moms to give to them at the end of the year.
To go along with tea time, students create these sweet Mother’s Day lapbooks.
With this craft, they can color and decorate a special gift for their mom. They can write a letter to mom, draw a picture of the two of them, give them tea, share what they love about her, create Mother’s Day coupons, and more. This gift is sure to be a hit with all moms!
Mother’s Day Tea may be a little more challenging this year because of the pandemic. Some classes are in person again, but some students are still learning from home. If you aren’t able to bring moms into the classroom, you can send these gifts home with students as well.
If you are distance learning, and need something kids can gift virtually, they can create these digital Mother’s Day cards.
This resource comes with 10 Google Slides. Just use the edit boxes to add your own text, add an image of mom and print to give to mom or their caregiver.
It may be a little different this year but students can still spoil their moms and show appreciation for all they do with these fun resources.
