Creative ways to celebrate Mother's Day with EYFS and primary classes

Finding original ways to help your pupils show how much they appreciate their mums, female family members or carers is no mean feat. But fear not! We’ve picked out five of the very best Mother’s Day resources to support your teaching on the run up to Mothering Sunday. 

Themed lessons

Ideal for an assembly or in the classroom, this simple presentation uses lots of pictures to introduce the customs of Mother's Day to younger learners. Similarly, this detailed resource pack*, containing an overview presentation and accompanying literacy and numeracy worksheets, prepares pupils for many traditions associated with the day.

Encourage students to unleash their inner poet with this short unit of work​, which comes complete with writing frames to help to make their verses as meaningful as possible. And brighten up any Mother's Day-themed writing or drawing with this colourful collection of page borders.

Creative activities

No Mother's Day is complete without a card, so make sure your pupils have one ready using these imaginative bear-themed templates*. Alternatively, this little booklet is a unique way for older learners to show how much they care about their mothers.

Why not inspire creative thinking with this simple yet touching box filled with love activity, which can be easily adapted to suit any year group? Or, for something a bit different, get students practising their basic mental maths skills while making a gift of chocolate truffles in this tasty lesson.
