Sentimental Journey Activity for Kids
Tell mom how much you love her -- in an original poem! This Sentimental Journal kids craft is a Mother's Day activity will make mom cry tears of joy because it's truly a gift from the heart.
What You'll Need:
Family photo albums or videotapes
White or colored paper
Look through family photo albums or watch videotapes of family celebrations and trips to remember special events you shared with mom. This is a great way to get inspiration for a Mother's Day poem.
Tell her how special an experience was because she was there to share it with you.
Ask yourself: What has mom meant to me? Has she done things for me that no one else has? What do I especially love about her?
Think of how happy her smile makes you, how warm and comforting it feels to be hugged by her. Does she help you with your homework? Play games with you? Cook your favorite foods?
Your poem does not have to rhyme. A good poem is full of feelings and words that create lively, colorful pictures in the mind of the reader.
Write your poem on colored paper, and draw pictures to go with it.
When you're finished, have mom take a seat and give her a live poetry reading.
Mother's Day is all about showing mom how much you love and appreciate her. Go to the next page to learn how to create a colored candle-holder.
