Great Ideas For Mothers Day
A Rainbow Lesson Plan Using The Color Yellow
Using color is a great way to inspire creativity in children, whether in a group together or just with your own at home.
When thinking about Mothers Day, yellow speaks so much of the many things that could describe mothers: It is vibrant and energetic. It evokes feelings of happiness, joy and humour and of warmth and cheerfulness. In any case, this would be the things we would wish for our mothers. At springtime there is so much yellow color around us that it isn't too difficult to find ways and resources to send these messages through creativity and with love.
When planning a session with children or a surprise for a mother on Mother's Day, decorate the room beforehand with lots of yellow color, using flowers, material, lighting or anything that will bring warmth and cheerfulness to set the mood in the room. This color attracts attention easily as well, so when you have created something, you can be assured that it will be readily noticed by the happy recipient.

Ideas For Mothers Storytime
Read this story to inspire children in the following activity.
Children learn in this charmingly illustrated story that they can make a difference by making selfless decisions. In the unselfish act of releasing the butterfly, the two children come to understand that their true wish is one of love.
These yellow butterfly wings make a great prop for your story. The children can have great fun in becoming the butterfly in the story.
Make A Yellow Butterfly
Thank You For Mothers!
Draw a large butterfly on plain paper. Color it yellow, cut it out and get each child to write on it with contrasting black crayon or pen what they like about their mothers. These attributes could be said as a prayer of thanks to God for our mothers. They could further decorate their butterflies by adding sequines, crepe paper and more colour to be really beautiful, like their mothers! You can either make one large picture together to hang on the wall afterwards, or each child makes their own to take home with them. If large enough, you could even add straps so that they can attach them to their backs. They might need reinforcing a little to ensure they are strong enough.
A Picture Of Beauty
Everything in this world is beautiful in it's own way! Draw a picture of your mother, making her as beautiful as you can, using lots of colour.
