How about a book mark. We have done this in the past.

 

Cut out an oblong with a point at the end. Hole punch up the sides and then the children can practice threading with ribbon. They look really nice. If you want you can also cover them in a doiley before hole punhcing.

 

Something for them to keep and use. :o

Just being pedantic but please remember it's actually 'Mothering Sunday' not 'Mothers's Day', which is a commercialisation of the religious roots of this day :o

we basically cut round a teapot shape in card. there is a rhyme to paste inside and we hang a teabag inside. if somebody doesnt come forward with the rhyme i will try and remember to get it but not in til mon as on course tomo :o

oh and we usually decorate it with flower printing or finger prints is effective for a spotty teapot

Have done the teapot many times and made up our own rhyme.....

Happy Mother's Day

You are the best

Put your feet up

And have a rest....

Has anybody else tried Marion's link? I am getting a very strange forum message which tells me I am not allowed to use this feature. Is anybody else having that problem?

I can view Marions picture fine.

 

This year we are making vases from Yogurt bottle, painted and maybe make a flower to go in it or buy some daffodils... also make a special label to go on it.

one of the ones we did last year was Mother's Day Kisses

 

Place 2 heart chocs back to back in the bowl of a spoon. Cover with netting and tie a small ribbon. To The ribbon bow attach the following poem:

 

Happy Mother's Day

A spoonful of love

And a couple of wishes

That you enjoy your

Mother's Day Kisses!

 

 

 

another teapot rhyme I once used is

 

Just put the kettle on to boil

And have a cup of tea

Then sit down in your favorite chair

And cozy up with me!

 

Today you don't need sugar

I really want to say

My love will sweeten everything

You touch on Mothers' Day!

OOh in that case - have you done the boxes?

 

These are - well in the past we have used rectangular blocks of wood my husband has made - rectangles, you could collect those big cooks matches matchboxes, then the children wrap them in pretty paper with bows and everything on, and you affix a label which says

 

"This is a very special gift

That you can never see

The reason it's so special,

It's just to you from me

 

You never can unwrap it

Please leave the ribbon tied

Just hold this box close to your heart

It's filled with love inside

 

Whenever you are lonely

Or even feeling blue

You only have to hold this gift

To know I think of you."

What lovely ideas

Simple enough for me to do with the parent and toddler group, I always try too hard, last year each child got to take home a clay handprint for mothers day and footprint for fathers day. This year I'm trying to simplify it! Its hard trying to get everything completed in one and half hours each week.

Does anyone have a teapot template the could upload and then I can set my husband cutting them out.

 

Another idea I did whilst working in pre-school is a babyfood jar, tissue paper and glue the outside and place paper flowers made by the children inside. Something to keep forever.

It's my daughters 12th birthday.The last time Mothering Sunday fell on her birthday it was her first birthday and she was christened in the middle of the morning church service followed by a big party with roast Sunday Lunch :o to celebrate her first birthday, her Christening and her legal adoption. This year is bound to bring back so many happy memories.

Mothering Sunday and my mum's birthday were close together, neatly topped off by St Patrick's day! So March always provided cause for celebration in our house. xD

 

Hope MrsWeasley has put the date in her diary! :o

Last year we just let the children choose what card they would like to make and then put them in envelopes and went on a walk to the post office to post the cards home to mummy for Mothering Sunday.

 

We had lots of fab feedback from parents saying that the children really understood the journey of the cards and purpose.
