We love to celebrate Moms at Little Village Kids! Here are some fun activities for you to do with your little ones for Mother’s Day. You can enjoy these together or drop a not-so-subtle hint to Dad that these might make fun gifts.
Below, you’ll find coloring pages that you can download, print, and perfect. There’s also some “All-About” pages that make for some fun discussion and memorable answers. We’ve included more than just Mom in the All-About pages in case you want to also celebrate other important people that fill the role of mom in different ways.
Finally, there are two videos showing how to make paper flowers. These are a great way to use things like your child’s handprint to craft unique gifts for Mom.
However you choose to enjoy these activities, please know that you (and your Mom) are loved and appreciated by all of us at Little Village Kids. Happy Mother’s Day!
