Celebrate Mother’s Day with these Fun Activities for Mom

It’s Mother’s Day! Do you know how to celebrate it? There are so many ways to celebrate this special day, especially with kids. This blog post will highlight some of the best ways for your child to show their gratitude, show off their creativity and learn more about what Mom does each day by helping them complete our printable color-by-numbers card.

You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money on this holiday. It is all about the love and appreciation that your child has for his mother. You just have to have a little patience while they race around trying to find something that fits in with the theme of “Mom”. Here are a few of the great gifts you can give your Mom this year:

Postcards from her favorite places she and your child have been. If you remember, sneak one in from the hospital when she was giving birth to your child.

A framed picture collage of special moments between her and her child.

A postcard that says “Thank You for making me the best that I can be” or something similar. She will appreciate anything that came from the heart!

This is your child’s time to shine! Get out all of his/her art supplies, stickers, crayons and colored pencils.

Make up some funny cards for Mom.

Color-by-numbers cards are great gifts because it shows Mom that your child takes time out of his day to take care of her. It also teaches him the basics about planning, writing and color matching. The best part is that you can change the color every day so he will never run out of options!

Here is how our card went. Our son chose to use blue on his card. He picked out the colors first. Then he picked out the pictures he wanted on the card. The pictures are of mom on her bike, on a walk with him, making dinner, etc.

The colors he chose were purple, black and green. He picked white as our background color because it goes with everything!

I began by taking one of the templates/instructions for this project and filling in some of our information about where we live, which day it is and what she does for a living. I also drew some flowers or butterflies that he could color-match to each picture.

To create a fun background in each picture, we used a Helper. I drew a small flower (or butterfly) right in the middle of the template. After I filled in all of our personal information, I turned off the background by clicking “edit” and then “remove background”.

As soon as you begin to fill out your template, your child will do it for you! You can talk about what you want to write and how you want him to color-match each picture.

When he is finished coloring in each picture, he will color-match it with the flowers or butterflies that go with it. It is really amazing to see his creativity at work. He learns basic colors and shapes while having fun.

You can print the template in color or black and white. What a great way to teach your little one about color matching, writing and planning! It really is the perfect gift for Mom!

Great! Now that your child is ready to give his gift to Mom, you have to find the perfect card for her. Here are a few ideas that you could use:

Color-by-numbers cards are a wonderful way that your child can express how much he loves his mom. He will learn from this project how to plan, write and color-match while having fun. It is great for all ages!
