It’s almost Mother’s day, what should you do? Here are activities children can do for mother’s day as in the lesson or for homework.

Get children to create a card for their mum. The card could have a poem inside that children have written. Children can use language skills, encouraging children to gain creativity. Children can get their imagination to write poetry from the books they have been learning to read, collecting ideas and techniques on those books. Practising poems leads children to play around with poem structures so children will be able to improve their literacy skills. Mothers will be proud with even a single heartfelt message.
Design with paper
Get children to create anything other than a card, for example, creating paper flowGet children to create anything other than a card, for example, creating paper flowers or anything with paper to create any shapes. It could also be a drawing; the drawing could be a flower, a picture of their mum. The form could be a heart-shaped one and many other shapes. Children can make the paper into a book to write a story, which is the next activity idea.
Write a story
