Celebrating Mother’s Day in early years settings is a great opportunity to help children express their love and appreciation for their mothers or significant mother figures in their lives.

Here are some activities that can be done:

Handmade Cards: Children can make handmade cards for their mothers. Provide various craft materials like colored papers, stickers, and glitter for children to make their cards beautiful and personalized.

Handprint or Footprint Keepsakes: Have children make prints of their hands or feet on a piece of cardstock. They can then decorate around the prints and present these as keepsakes.

Remember, not all children may have mothers in their lives. Be sensitive to children’s family situations and adapt activities to include other significant caregivers where necessary.
