Do you ever surf the web (is that even what it's called anymore? I'm stuck in the 90's.) and see all the sites with the cute pictures and fancy backgrounds. Yeah. Sorry. I'm not willing to put in that much effort and time for what I deem "fluff". Not that "fluff" is bad, I actually really like fluff... however, it's just not my thang.
Take me as I am, thank you Brian Adams.
This is an activity for primary children to do with their "special lady". I've said it before, but I'll say it again. I don't think kids should ever feel bad on mother's day if they don't have a mother. BABESTER. Hence the "special lady" bit.
This is really easy and cheap to put together. For each child you'll need:
2 paper plates
2 popsicle sticks
1 poem/instruction sheet (print on cardstock preferably for durability)
1 balloon (not blown up!!)
1 small bag of Hershey Hugs (or kisses)
-Crayons and tape to decorate the paddles and a small clip to put everything together for the children to take home-
Explain to the children that this is an activity where they will hit the balloon with their special lady, and after 5 hits back and forth they'll ask a question to get to know each other better. Have the children decorate their paddles with their very best work! Put all the items together with a clip!! Hopefully this activity can bring some happiness to homes!
The poem is as follows:
My Special Lady-
You're so neat!
From you head
down to your feet!
I love you so!
Thanks for helping
me to grow.
Back and forth,
ping then pong-
Let's play a game
it won't take long!
We'll share some laughs
We'll share some fun
We'll share some hugs
when we are done!
I did add a small attribution in the corner, hopefully it won't detract from the message. I just never want these things to be sold for money. God gives me ideas, I write them down, hooray for things that are free!
Hopefully you can just click on the image and print. If not, you can email me and I'll send you the file!
Happy Mother/ Special Lady's Day!!
