At my church, my husband and I used to teach a class of twelve 11 & 12-year-old children. They recently split our class, and I now solo teach the 4 girls. I love teaching them. I also get to be their Activity Days Leader along with the 10-year-old girls. Needless to say, I have so much fun thinking of ideas to do with them. Now that I only have 4 in my class on Sundays, I can do more handouts and fun activities/crafts. I was at the store on Saturday, and last minute decided to do something in class for their mothers. I saw the M&M bags and thought, "Hey, M&M . . . that's kinda close to MOM." So I grabbed 4 bags and came home.
After putting the kids to bed, I started up Photoshop and got to work. I made a cute little MOM M&M label. Guess what, I making it available for free download. Sorry, I know it's too late to use for this year's Mother's Day.
I searched on the internet to see what other M&M ideas were out there that involved Mothers. I came across this one:
It's a free downloaded printable from Over the Big Moon. It's a game for children to play with their moms while sharing a bag of M&Ms. The girls in my class packaged up their MOM bag of M&Ms with a printed copy of the game, tied it up with a little card they wrote. They were all so excited to share their gift and fun with their moms.
Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!
