Since yesterday was Mother’s Day I had my Sunday School class make something for their mothers.
First, I helped the children trace their handprint onto a piece of green construction paper. After cutting them out the children glued a flowerpot, the handprint, and the top of the flowerpot (a thin rectangle) to another piece of paper.
Note: I precut the flowerpot pieces and the flowers.
Next, the children glued flowers onto each of their fingertips.
Finally, I wrote down the children’s responses to the statement, “I love my Mommy because…”. The two pictures above are my 2 and 5 year old’s. 🙂
Older children could most certainly write their answers themselves.
We also talked about mothers in the Bible like Mary, Hannah, and Jochebed.
