Let the children say thank you to their mums on Mother’s Day with these extra-special gift ideas
Personal, social and emotional development
Be sensitive to individual circumstances. Talk to the children about all the caring things that their mum or special person does for them, for example, hugs them; cooks tasty meals; reads bedtime stories; takes them to the park; and so on. Explain that some people are given medals if they do something very special. Ask the children if they think their mum deserves a medal for everything she does? Provide the children with card discs and invite them to make a medal for their mum or special person by decorating the disc using a wide variety of decorative materials such as ribbons; silver foil; gold paper; colourful pens; pretty beads; sequins; and glitter. Help the children to attach the medal to a long length of ribbon so that their mum can wear the medal around her neck. Alternatively, use a short strip of ribbon and a safety pin to create a medal that can be pinned in place. Extend the activity by helping the children to decorate a small box with the words ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ for them to place the medal inside.
