2) Mother's Day Poem

Here's a poem I wrote several years ago for Mother's Day. Feel free to use it!

I printed copies of the poem, had the kids make cards, and put the poem in the cards. I included a package of flower seeds with each card:

These seeds are here for me and you
And, Mommy, here's what we can do:
Together we'll search until we've found
A spot to plant them in the ground.
With rain and sunshine, don't you know,
Our flowers, like our love, will grow!
A constant reminder our flowers will be
That I love Mommy and she loves me!

Another idea would be to have the kids decorate little flower pots and include the poem, seed packet, and a pair of gardening gloves as a gift. :o)

4) "M" is for . . .

For a Mother's Day activity, have children use the acronym "M.O.T.H.E.R." to describe their moms. Get them started by giving a few examples such as, "M" is for "marvelous," "O" is for "outstanding," "T" is for terrific, etc. And then end the "poem" with, "What's that spell? MOTHER! I love you like no other!"
