Sunday 14th May is Mother's Day. It is a celebration showing their appreciation for the achievements and efforts of mothers and mother figures. It is annually observed in Australia on the second Sunday of May. The following provides free Printables, Activities and Templates that will enable you to celebrate Mother's Day at your service and activities that can be implemented into the curriculum for children.

This template is for children to provide details to a series of questions about their mum. It's a great way to hear thoughts of the child and what they think about their mum based on the questions provided. 

This template is for children to share what they love about their mums. This is great for Mother's Day and for each mum to read what their child loves about them. 

The Mother's Day Colouring Pages are funny and cute colouring pages for children to colour, paint, and collage for Mother's Day. These are a cute way for children to express their love for mum on Mother's Day.

Handprint Bowl

Using salt dough children can make this easy gift for Valentine's Day. They can be used to keep tiny objects like rings or keys or some other nick-nacks.

Footprint Heart

Category Art and Craft

Bored of trying a lot of finger and palm print crafts? Then this one is for you! If you haven’t tried a footprint craft yet this footprint heart craft is the one you must try. It’s such a simple idea but makes a beautiful keepsake you can cherish for so many years. Yes, indeed this would make a great gift for the mothers as they would be surprised to see their little munchkins wish them with this beautiful piece of craft. And I bet its worth the little mess it creates!

Flower Magnets

Category Art and Craft

This wonderful activity which involves the salt dough preparation and then making of flowers using them and then making magnets with these flowers is very interesting. Though a long process, children will enjoy doing it for their mothers. To start with the activity, you can simply ask the children if they could correlate their mums with flowers. Let them speak out and say what they find common in both – the flowers and their mums. This will build their capacity to form sentences and speak out their thoughts. At the same time, we are introducing them to the activity as well.
