Mother's Day Crafts

Don’t worry the activities are easy. (Sigh of relief) Most of the items your child can do with minimum supervision. Have Dad around to help with spelling or with the cutting.

The crafts are not messy either. (Hurray!) If your child remembers to pick up after themselves you should not even notice a mess!

Many countries set aside a special day to honor mothers. The day is different depending on the country. The most common months are March and May. In most counties people give flowers, candy, or cards.

In the United States Mother’s Day was established by Anna Jarvis. It became a national holiday in 1914. However, Anna did not like the fact people were buying more cards for their mother’s instead of making them. So in 1948 she was arrested for disturbing the peace while protesting against the commercialism of the holiday.

She did get her way in wanting the term mother’s to be singular. She wanted each family to celebrate their mother not mothers in general.
