Honor Your Mother

honor your mother craft

In the Bible, we are told to honor our father and mother. (Exodus 20:12, Deuteronomy 5:16, Ephesians 6:2)

Before you do this craft, have your class brainstorm ways that they could honor their mother. Here are some ideas;

  • saying I love you
  • picking up my toys without being told
  • cleaning my room
  • washing the dishes
  • treating my brother/ sister nice
  • give my mom a moment of time without asking for something
  • give a compliment to your mom like dinner was good, or I like your dress

PS, you could use this craft for Father's Day or for anyone who you want to honor.


  • White construction paper
  • Colored pen or marker
  • Red or pink construction paper
  • Glue stick
